Entering South Carolina.
USMCRD. United States Marine Corps Recruit Depot.
I haven't been here since 1966. I didn't recognize anything until we got to the base. Which makes sense, in 1966 I got there in the dark and I left in the dark!
They have a really great museum. Since it is an "open base" anyone can come and just go to the museum. Recommend not doing it on a Thursday or Friday since those are graduation days and the base is packed by 6 a.m. You will need picture ID for everyone in the car and registration and proof of insurance to get on to the base.
