Marine Corps Pvt. Jordan Daais, son of Amanda and Jehad Daais of Lake Worth, earned the title of United States Marine after graduating from recruit training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot in Parris Island, S.C.
For 13 weeks, Daais stayed committed during some of the world’s most demanding entry-level military training in order to be transformed from civilian to Marine.
The training instilled pride, discipline and the core values of honor, courage and commitment.
Training subjects included close-order drill, marksmanship with an M-16A4 rifle, physical fitness, martial arts, swimming, military history, customs and courtesies.
One week prior to graduation, Daais endured the Crucible, a 54-hour final test of recruits’ minds and bodies.
Upon completion, recruits are presented the Marine Corps emblem and called Marines for the first time.
Daais is a 2011 graduate of Park Vista High School.
