Parris Island Oath of Enlistment.Cpl Vanessa Austin USMC 2016

Marine recruits taking the oath of enlistment at Parris Island, South Carolina in 2016. The death last week of Pvt. Anthony Munoz, who fell off a balcony on his first day of training, is the second in three months at the Marine boot camp, bringing more scrutiny after a 2016 hazing scandal after an alleged suicide. The investigation showed that 90% of all hazing complaints in 2018 came from the Marines, and 90% of Marine complaints were substantiated; drill instructors were among those who lost their jobs.
