Lewis & Clark Young Marines’ first recruit class graduated on December 7, 2002 with 27 recruits.
During the first five years of the Lewis and Clark Young Marines, there were 12 recruit classes with nearly 230 recruits who joined the program.
Recruit Class 41203 graduated 54 Young Marines total, creating a two platoon series. The National Director Mr. Mike Kessler was so pleased with our gigantic recruit platoon, he came out and was our Guest Speaker for that graduation. He presented the National Director’s Commemorative Challenge coins to our two Honor Grads that day.
Each recruit platoon awards the best performing, highest scoring, best overall recruit with the prestigious award of Honor Graduate. The Honor Grad receives an Honor Graduate ribbon with the Silver “R” device.
