Details

This special commemorative KA-BAR fighting knife is the perfect gift for new recruits or Marines who trained at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego, CA.  The engraved footprints signify the famous yellow footprints that are found outside of the Receiving Building, where recruits prepare to pass through the double doors for their first taste of military life. The yellow footprints are a tradition at both Recruit Depots. Also included on the KA-BAR blade is the phrase, "Where It All Begins."

Marine Corps Recruit Depot (commonly referred to as MCRD) San Diego is a United States Marine Corps military installation in San Diego, California. It lies between San Diego Bay and Interstate 5, adjacent to San Diego International Airport and the former Naval Training Center San Diego. MCRD San Diego's main mission is the initial training of enlisted male recruits living west of the Mississippi River. Over 21,000 recruits are trained each year. The Depot also is the home to the Marine Corps' Recruiter School and Western Recruiting Region's Drill Instructors School.

Marines made an amphibious landing in San Diego in 1846 from USS Savannah and USS Congress during the Mexican–American War. Marines made a presence in San Diego again in July 1914, but ground was not broken for a permanent base until March 2, 1919. The initial proposal for the base came from Congressman William Kettner, who also proposed construction of Naval Training Center San Diego. The Marine base only became a reality due to the perseverance of its first commanding officer, Colonel Joseph Henry Pendleton (later a general and the namesake of Camp Pendleton). By 1921, the base was formally commissioned, and in 1923 it became the Marine Corps' recruit training center for the western United States. In 1948, the base was formally named Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego.
