U.S. Marine Corps Pvt. Jesus A. Murillo Aguirre completes basic training

Marlborough – U.S. Marine Corps Pvt. Jesus A. Murillo Aguirre, son of Jackeline and Erwin Murillo of Marlborough, recently completed 12 weeks of basic training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S.C., designed to challenge new Marine recruits both physically and mentally.

Murillo Aguirre and fellow recruits began their training at 5 a.m., by running three miles and performing calisthenics. In addition to the physical conditioning program, he spent numerous hours in classroom and field assignments which included learning first aid, uniform regulations, combat water survival, marksmanship, hand-to-hand combat and assorted weapons training. The recruits performed close order drill and operated as a small infantry unit during field training.

He and other recruits also received instruction on the Marine Corps’ core values – honor, courage and commitment – and what the core values mean in guiding personal and professional conduct.

The recruits ended the training phase with The Crucible, a 54-hour, team evolution culminating in an emotional ceremony in which recruits are presented the Marine Corps Emblem, and addressed as “Marines” for the first time in their careers.
