Recruit Class 32418 is Lewis & Clark Young Marines 23rd recruit class since our unit was chartered in 2002. These 40 eager recruits started their training on Jan 13th and will graduate on March 24th. During that time they will learn everything needed to master the required Performance Objectives in their Basic Guidebook to earn the rank of Young Marine Private or Meritorious Private First Class. After the graduation ceremony on March 24th they will officially become Young Marines and will be assigned to one of our three platoons, Alpha, Bravo or Charlie. From that point on, they will be included in Lewis & Clark Young Marine events and activities. You are looking at future leaders of our unit.
