Definitely worth the wait!

Yearbooks and/or the slideshow DVD from MCRD San Diego can take up to four months to be delivered but well worth the wait. The DVD consists of training photos throughout boot.

Comment by Therese on January 18, 2017 at 6:36pm

I can't remember, but maybe 6 months. No, I wouldn't worry.

Comment by Hiltonh on January 18, 2017 at 6:28pm
