PPSO Congratulates Graduates of the Young Marines Program “Foxtrot” Class
After a comprehensive two-week training course and final exam, Sheriff Gerald A. Turlich, Jr. and the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office (PPSO) congratulates nine new graduates of the PPSO Young Marines Program on Saturday, July 18.
The recent graduates, known as the “Foxtrot” class, were the sixth recruit class to graduate from the PPSO Young Marines Program since its inception in 2014. Since recruit class “Foxtrot” commenced just prior to the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic, instructors conducted virtual training via Zoom in order to maintain a safe and healthy experience. From leadership, physical fitness, Drug Demand Reduction, community service and citizenship – the recruits have been working on a variety of values and will continue to work toward improving themselves and their community leadership, teamwork and discipline. The recruits met one Saturday to conduct close order drill (marching) and physical fitness training.
There was one graduate that was recognized for his outstanding achievement. Young Marine Jared Vidrine was named the 2020 Honor graduate while posting the highest final exam score of 92% resulting in his promotion to Young Marine Private First Class (PFC).
