Marine Corps Recruiting Station – St. Louis has just released another awesome video explaining the 3-day “Mini-Bootcamp” they organize and host for Marine Corps Delayed Entry Program (DEP) poolees. The experience is designed to familiarize prospective Marine Corps recruits with the physical, mental and moral aspects of the recruit training they will experience at either of the Marine Corps Recruit Depots. Core components of the program include:

1. Initial Strength Test (1.5 mile run, max pull-ups or flexed arm hang, and max crunches)
2. Drill Instructor led training
3. Marine Corps drill
4. Weapons training
5. Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP)
