Marine NCO's would pull selected men from the lines of men processing thru the induction centers, often located in government leased hotels in large cities, e.g. Los Angeles, California. Lines of men in their underware would be processing at different levels of the rented hotel; each level would be a different examination, e.g. eye tests, color blind tests, blood pressure tests, private body examinations, etc. From there men would be loaded onto chartered civilian buses (standing room only) and bused to an airport, or the nearest US Army Fort. Once there, in processing for a week (or two) then boot camp (basic training) began.
