Drill instructors for Platoon 1086, Charlie Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, recite the Drill Instructor Pledge on July 25, 2015, before taking charge of the young men they are expected to mold into Marines on Parris Island, S.C. In the pledge, drill instructors promise to train their recruits to the best of their abilities, meaning they will not give up on the recruits even when the recruits may give up on themselves. 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 approximately 50 percent of males and 100 percent of females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Sgt. Jennifer Schubert)
