Marines Suspended from Duty Pending Investigation

Three Low Country Marines have been suspended from their duties after 12 Marine recruits at Parris Island were admitted to the hospital suffering from dehydration and muscle pain.

Now Parris Island officials are investigating the three drill instructors, who are accused of violating recruit training practices. Marine Corps officials say this will not be tolerated. "They will be held responsible for their actions," said Maj. Ken White.

We'll stay on top of the story and let you know what happens.
