About the Show
Within the Marine Corps exists a group of highly trained and superbly skilled recruits - those assigned to the reconnaissance community. They are the silent professionals. Enter the world of the men of the Third Reconnaissance Battalion during their final month of training in the California desert before deploying to Iraq. They train as they expect to fight. Role players, mock villages and pyrotechnics along with the latest intelligence are used to design realistic combat scenarios for them to adapt and survive in. What does it take for these men to pass muster in combat training and how do the bonds they form in their final days before war help them prepare for the task ahead of them? Find out in Marine Boot Camp.
