Marine Recruit: Tears in the Sand is an epic novel of a Marine Corps boot camp (San Diego); a compelling, unabridged account of recruit training as told by the drill instructor. Author of chronicles of a marine rifleman, retired first sergeant, Herb Brewer, USMC, now brings to life this outstanding, all-encompassing, witty, honest, caringly brutal, human, and timeless narrative. Combining two stories into one, he takes you all the way from the grueling view of the recruit to the panoramic mission and perspective of the Drill Instructor. At MCRD, you can count on two things: the recruit is green, the marine drill instructor is legendary. First Sergeant Brewer captures the essence and awareness of what it means to be both. Marine Recruit is a rare and unparalleled look into MCRD. Enter now the revered birthplace of the Marines where every drill instructor was once a recruit.Depot Order P1510.30F, Standing Operating Procedure for Recruit Training, Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego, California, 92140, 4 November 1971. 4. ...
