Marine Corps Pvt. David S. Mott completed his basic training at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego, Calif. on Dec. 9.
Mott is a Coupeville High School graduate and was a Central Whidbey Fire volunteer firefighter/emergency medical technician for three years. He is the son of John and Hilde Mott of Greenbank and the grandson of Larry Schneider of Freeland.
Mott is at home for a short leave before he returns to Camp Pendleton, Calif. for one month of Marine combat training. This will be followed by about
16 months of language/linguist training at the Defense Language Institute at the Presidio of Monterey, Calif. where the Marine will undergo intensive instruction in Arabic.
Following his language training, Mott will attend the Cryptologic Linguist Course at Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas for six months of signals and electronic warfare training.
After completing more than two years of training, Mott will most likely be assigned to a Marine Corps Radio Battalion.
