Yellow foot prints, where the journey began, where the rest of your life will be changed forever. A yellow footprint is a historical data resource center with information that starts with boot camp, and ends with a Marines final duty station.WHY this web site when there are so many Marine sites on the Internet today. Although there are many great Marine Corps webs sites on the net, 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.
Boot Camp Database:The boot camp database is the only searchable database on the Internet today! It starts from the late 1930’s and continues through the present graduates of 2005. 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 coped into the database that include Drill Instructor page as well as recruit photos. In many cases graduation books have been purchased and scanned into the database as well. One very unique entry is platoon 2060 that graduated in 1957, that would be Lee Harvey Oswald’s platoon. Another feature of this database is the ability of members ability to post their scanned graduation books that includes pictures.
Obituary database: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 Viet Nam. This is an active database that even members can enter information about loved one's, or brother Marines.
