Wingert, son of Mr. and Mrs. Clare E. Wingert, Wesley, was graduated from eight weeks of recruit training at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot here. He will now undergo from two to four weeks of individual combat training and then, after leave at home,, will report to his first Marine Corps assignment. The intensified Marine recruit training emphasizes rigid physical conditioning and survival techniques, both at sea and ashore, to develop self-confidence and endurance. Marksmanship with the M-14 rifle and 45-caliber pistol are equally stressed, and close order drill instills the traditions of Marine Corps teamwork. A thorough study of basic military subjects, hygiene, first aid and sanitation, and the customs, courtesies, history and mission of the Marine Corps serve to polish the new Marine's recruit education and prepare him to join the Marine combat forces.
