Gunnery Sgt. David Washington, the 1st Recruit Training Battalion operations chief, measures the length of Pfc. Robert Martin's belt during the battalion commander's inspection Nov. 23, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Washington, a 29-year-old native of North Olmsted, Ohio, inspected Martin, Platoon 1089, Charlie Company, military knowledge, uniform, personal appearance and military bearing. Martin, an 18-year-old native of Weaverville, N.C., is scheduled to graduate Nov. 27, 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 of females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Lance Cpl. MaryAnn Hill)
