About "A Marine's Tail: Chesty Goes To Boot Camp"
Chesty is no ordinary bulldog. He is the mascot of the United States Marine Corps and he lives in the historic Marine Corps Barracks in Washington DC. In this book, children can read about how it all began for Chesty...at Marine Corps Recruit Depot (a.k.a Boot Camp). In this colorful rhyming book, you'll get to follow Chesty as he stands on the yellow footprints, meets his Drill Instructors, and learns what it takes to be transformed into a United States Marine.
