SDI/DI Quarterly Awards

"These recruits are entrusted to my care. I will train them to the best of my ability. I will
develop them into smartly disciplined, physically fit, basically trained marines, thoroughly
indoctrinated in love of the Corps and country. I will demand of them and demonstrate by my
own example, the highest standards of personal conduct, morality and professional skill."
