The Mission: We Make Marines

Welcome to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego. The Depot's primary function is to take quality young men from the western two-thirds of the United States and transform them through the foundations of rigorous basic training, our shared legacy, and a commitment to our Core Values, preparing them to win our Nation’s battles in service to the country. The depot is also home to: Drill Instructor School which teaches sergeants, staff sergeants and gunnery sergeants what it takes to make Marines; and Recruiters School which teaches noncommissioned officers and staff NCO's how to find America's best and brightest and bring them into our ranks.
