SOUND ON! Recruits call their families to notify them they have arrived safely at Parris island. They must follow a script and shout into the receiver. I documented the process from civilian, to recruit, to marine for a story on women on the frontlines in this month’s @natgeo magazine. I covered women on the frontlines of war, on peacekeeping missions, and in training in five countries over six months. On today‘s battlefields, more women than ever are in the fight. Females are taking more active roles in militaries, serving on the front lines of armed conflicts and as peacekeepers in the world‘s hot spots.

I remember this day like it was yesterday. I left for Parris Island on Easter Sunday in 2008.

When I went to boot camp, My handset wasn’t working, so I just pretended to talk to my parents by yelling the script into the receiver. That was in 2006. I feel so old 😩🦖

Listening to this makes me cry remembering the day my sister told me her son called and sounded just like this on his first day as a recruit. It was scary at first but letters to him every day made it easier to feel connected. I have a lot of admiration for these young woman.
