Parris Island, SC - Parris Island Marines raise a flag during a ceremony in which new Marines of Delta Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, and Papa Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, received their Eagle, Globe and Anchor emblems Sept. 7, 2013, at the Iwo Jima flag raising statue on Parris Island, S.C. This ceremony has been a tradition since the first Crucible in 1996. Delta Company is scheduled to graduate Sept. 13, 2013. Parris Island has been the site of Marine Corps recruit training since Nov. 1, 1915. Today, approximately 20,000 recruits come to Parris Island annually for the chance to become United States Marines by enduring 13 weeks of rigorous, transformative training. Parris Island is home to entry-level enlisted training for 50 percent of males and 100 percent for females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Lance Cpl. MaryAnn Hill)
