PARRIS ISLAND, S.C. - Drill instructors with Platoon 3032, Mike Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, wait to unleash themselves on their recruits shortly after being introduced March 1, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. This was the first encounter the recruits had with the Marines responsible for the following 12 weeks of training. Mike Company is scheduled to graduate May 23, 2014. 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 of females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Cpl. Caitlin Brink)
