Promotions in Marine Corps. Boot Camp info


Isn't it true that if you get a bachelor's degree and then go to boot camp, that you get promoted right off the bat just for even having a degree? Because I know in the Air Force and Navy they do that.

To PFC in the USMC if I'm not mistaken.
Less perks in the USMC than in other branches and rightly so.

Oh thanks so much. Because I plan on going to Southern Illinois University. And if you qualify expert during rifle training you get promoted to LCpl?

No, you have to be Honor Man in boot to get LCpl.

Oh. What's an honor man? Is that like the guide during cadence running holding the flag and boot camp company number? Because I heard somewhere that also, if you qualify expertly, you get another "benefit" or something like that.

Honor Man is what you graduate as if you finish 1st in your Company.
Don't even think about it.

Series high shooter generally gets promoted, not everyone who shoots expert.

You can get PFC as part of your contract

Each series has X amount of promotions to PFC and Lcpl. They are divvied out by the Company, Series, Bn and sometimes the Regt CO. They are generally given to Guides, High shooters, Squad Leaders and PFT High score. To make Lcpl you'd have to be a contract PFC.
