Pfc. Chesty XIV, official mascot of the Marine Corps in-training, looks at the Marines at the conclusion of his eagle, globe and anchor emblem presentation ceremony at Marine Barracks Washington, D.C., April 8. The ceremony marked the conclusion of Chesty XIV's recruit training and basic indoctrination into the Corps. In the upcoming months, Chesty XIV is scheduled to attend and complete more obedience training to compliment his military training. The young Marine will serve in a mascot-apprentice roll for the remainder of the summer working alongside his predecessor and mentor, Sgt. Chesty XIII, until the sergeant's retirement which is expected in late August.
