Drill Instructor Staff Sgt. Maurice S. Jones, with Platoon 3038, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, encourages his recruits to push themselves through an incentive training session March 5, 2015, on Parris Island, S.C. Discipline, defined as the instant and willing obedience to all orders, respect for authority and self-reliance, is a key trait drill instructors, such as Jones, 28, from Philadelphia, must instill in recruits. India Company is scheduled to graduate May 15, 2015. 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 Sgt. Jennifer Schubert)
