Yellow foot prints, where the journey began, where the rest of your
life will be changed forever. Yellow Footprints is a historical data center with information that starts with boot camp, and ends with a Marines
final duty station.
Although there are many great Marine Corps websites on the internet, there are none like this site and the content it provides.
Yellow Foot Prints is about historical information, information not found
within the Marine Corps archives, and certainly information not found on the Internet in a searchable database. Although Yellow Foot Prints has
many databases, none are as important as our Boot Camp graduation database,
or the Obituary database.
We are proud to announce the recognition of Yellow Footprints by the Marine Corps Command Museum for both San Diego and Parris Island Historical Society as a supporting resource for boot camp graduation books and platoon pictures. We have worked hard over the years for this honor.
Yellow footprints proudly supports the Marine Corps Historical Society and Museums at Parris Island and San Diego for the work they do in preserving Marine Corps history. Please visit and donate to these great organizations
Marine Communication Center:
This is a new addition to the Yellow Footprints family of web sites. The Comm Center is a great tool for those searching for Marines, or family members searching for relatives who were in the Corps.
Where Yellow Footprints is about each Marines history during boot camp, the Comm Center is your way of connecting to those Marines you served with after boot camp.
Camp on-line Database:
The boot camp on-line database is the only searchable database of it's kind on the Internet
today! It starts from the late 1930's and continues through the present day.
It covers both Parris Island and San Diego with listings
of location, platoon numbers, recruit names, and rank at graduation where
available. When available, graduation books are scanned and copied into
the database that include Drill Instructor page as well as recruit photos.
Another feature of
this database is the ability of members to post their scanned pictures from their time in the Corps within the members gallery area of the database.
The new email feature is the addition of email addresses that can now be added to the on-line database within each platoon section. Add your email address for ease of contact by fellow recruits.
One very unique entry is platoon 2060 that graduated
in January of 1957, Lee Harvey Oswald's was in that platoon. Platoon Pictures, copies of travel documents and more can be found within platoon 2060 platoon section .
The Obituary database is also searchable, and contains entries that
include but are not limited to Arlington National Cemetery, The Wall, and
KIA from Iraq that includes Desert Storm, and past wars as Korea, and Vietnam. This is an active database that even members can enter information
about loved one's, or brother Marines.
