School of Infantry Recreation Center

SOI Recreation Center

“I’m so proud of my 18 yr old son, who is attending the School of Infantry at Camp Pendleton. Like many before him he is really challenged by the second part of Marine Boot Camp. During last weekend’s visit, he told me that 6 Marines in his platoon had attempted suicide (fortunately unsuccessfully) the prior week. My son’s platoon had delta liberty and was restricted from leaving the SOI area, so my son and I visited your local YMCA. A clear sign that you are doing it right. … My son pointed out four of the Marines that he said had attempted suicide earlier that week. All four of them were smiling and enjoying a movie. I knew at that moment that your / my son’s local YMCA was clearly succeeding at saving someone’s sons life.”
