After Governor Henry McMaster lifted the evacuation for Beaufort County, Parris Island has decided to lift it's evacuation as well.
Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island operations will continue as scheduled. Personnel who have evacuated already will have until 11:59 p.m. Wednesday to return to the local area on funded travel per the forthcoming evacuation status termination order, in support of regularly scheduled operations resuming Thursday morning.
Charlie Company will graduate tomorrow, September 12, and the ceremony will be recorded and distributed to the families via the MCRD Parris Island command website and social media platforms. MCRD Parris Island remains closed to the public.
