A LOOK AT MARINE CORPS RECRUIT DEPOT PARRIS ISLAND, THE WORLD’S MOST GRUELING FINISHING SCHOOL
It was Dec. 16, 1986, when local artist Jack McNulty first arrived on Parris Island.
“The first thing I remember seeing was a one-way sign pointing toward the island. I thought that was pretty fitting,” he said.
The next thing he remembers is the bus coming to a stop, the dawn still yet to rise around it, and drill instructors flooding the aisle ordering everyone off. Still groggy, the recruits stepped out onto the famed yellow footprints for the first time.
