Paperback, 192 pages, by Nick Popaditch.

The Ultimate Marine Recruit Training Guidebook was written by a Marine and former drill instructor for young men and women who want to become one of the few and the proud. No one should undertake Marine recruit training without having read this book.

Review From our Founder, Tracy Della Vecchia:
Attention Recruit Parents: If your son or daughter is in bootcamp now or soon to ship, you'll want to read this no-nonsense book that gives you details of the training your soon-to-be-Marine will be receiving, WHY the drill instructors do what they do, and how all that translates into not only becoming a Marine, but more importantly BEING a Marine. You'll love this book, and you'll love Nick Popaditch for telling it like it is!  For those whose son or daughter is thinking about joining the Marine Corps, this book makes a perfect gift for the potential poolee and poolee parent.
--Tracy Della Vecchia, Founder of MarineParents.com, Inc.

The transition from civilian to that of a Marine is a process unlike any other in any branch of the military. As any potential recruit can imagine, Marine recruit training is difficult and challenging. Its purpose is to mold a Marine from the inside out.

Nick "Gunny Pop" Popaditch is best known as the "Cigar Marine" and author of Once a Marine, a candid memoir about his service as a tank commander in Iraq, his horrific wounding in the first battle of Fallujah (where he was hit in the head by a rocket-propelled grenade), and his long and difficult recovery. Gunny Pop has experienced the Marine recruit training process from both perspectives: as a new recruit and as a drill instructor. This new book brings together his nearly 16 years of Marine Corps expertise.

The Ultimate Marine Recruit Training Guidebook is a comprehensive, practical, and easy-to-follow guide written specifically for every new or prospective recruit about to enter Marine recruit training. Gunny Pop offers step-by-step instructions and solutions, including helpful charts and graphics, for how to prepare both physically and mentally for recruit training. Written by a Marine who experienced it firsthand many times over, Gunny Pop explores what recruits will be asked to do (and in many cases, explain why) and the motivating forces behind drill instructor lessons and behavior.

About the Author: From East Chicago, Indiana, Nick Popaditch enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1986. He was wounded while commanding a tank in Fallujah (Iraq) in 2004 and medically retired from the Marines in 2005 at the rank of Gunnery Sergeant. "Gunny" and his wife April have two children, Richard and Nicholas. They reside in Chula Vista, California.

Great Book for Parents and Recruits
I wish I would have known about this book prior to my son shipping to bootcamp. However its been a great resource as a parent to understand what my son is going through. I love this book.

The Ultimate Marine Recruit Training Guidebook
Gunny Pop has provided an invaluable resource not only to young men and women preparing for recruit training, but also for parents who will watch their children head off to MCRD. This is a must have!
