As you know I am working through my transition from active duty life on the other side. What you may not know is that I am taking advantage of the Post 9/11 GI Bill in order to pursue an MBA from the University of Southern California’s Marshall Business School. One of the many things that I am working on is a term paper on organizational culture; specifically, how does the Marine Corps successfully imbue the culture of the Corps into newly minted Marines? How is the recruit training process so very effective in transforming civilians into Marines?
This is where you come in – if you are a graduate of Marine Corps recruit training, that is. If you earned the title of United States Marine at MCRD San Diego or MCRD Parris Island I would very humbly like to ask if you would be kind enough to take a survey about recruit training. I am garnering data to support my paper, and there is nobody more qualified to talk about how Recruits become Marines than those who suffered the terrors of the yellow footprints and the joy of graduation day.
So if you would be so kind to do so, follow this link and take the survey. It is anonymous, and you would truly be helping a fellow Marine (albeit a retired one) out! Thanks!
