High fives

Marine Corps Pvt. Zachery J. Hilton and Marine Corps Pvt. Colt L. Brink, both 2012 Hudson High School graduates, earned the title of U. S. Marines after graduating from recruit training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S.C.

For 13 weeks, Hilton and Brink stayed committed during entry-level military training, transforming from civilians to Marines instilled with pride, discipline and the core values of honor, courage and commitment. Training included close-order drill, marksmanship with an M-16A4 rifle, physical fitness, martial arts, swimming, military history, customs and courtesies.

Prior to graduation, Hilton and Brink endured the Crucible, a 54-hour final test of recruits' minds and bodies. Upon completion, recruits are presented the Marine Corps emblem and called Marines for the first time.
