Region – Marine Corps Pvt. Michael C. Webster, son of Kathryn O. and Daniel A. Webster of Marlborough, earned the title of United States Marine after graduating from recruit training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S. C.

For 13 weeks, Webster stayed committed during some of the world’s most demanding entry-level military training in order to be transformed from civilian to Marine.  Training subjects included close-order drill, marksmanship with an M-16A4 rifle, physical fitness, martial arts, swimming, military history, customs and courtesies.

One week prior to graduation, Webster endured “The Crucible,” a 54-hour final test of recruits’ minds and bodies. Upon completion, recruits are presented the Marine Corps emblem and called Marines for the first time.

Army Pvt. Edwin M. Wasiuk has graduated from Basic Combat Training at Fort Sill, Lawton, Okla.

During the nine weeks of training, the soldier studied the Army mission and received instruction and training exercises in drill and ceremonies, Army history, core values and traditions, military courtesy, military justice, physical fitness, first aid, rifle marksmanship, weapons use, map reading and land navigation, foot marches, armed and unarmed combat, and field maneuvers and tactics.

Wasiuk is the son of Edwin Wasiuk of Espie Avenue, Maynard and is a 2003 graduate of Assabet Valley High School, Marlborough.
