What does it take to be a Marine these days?

NBC 15's Zach Schultz and Photojournalist Jason Rice go to U.S. Marine Corps "boot camp" in San Diego to give you a look at how recruits prepare for battle in the 21st century. Wisconsin recruits are among those who realize what they learn here, they will probably be using in Iraq in the near future. The video on the playlist will show you how these young men are trained to be among "The Few. The Proud". Stories seen here will show how Marine Corps tradition is woven into 21st century tactics and how these young recruits are taught to prepare for possibly making the ultimate sacrifice. What does it take to remain "Semper Fi in the 21st Century"?
