Photo Gallery: Marine recruits awarded symbol of transformation on Parris Island

Upon the completion of his transformation, tears trickle down the face of Pvt. Hillel Sanabria, Platoon 3098, Lima Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, after earning his Eagle, Globe and Anchor emblem Dec. 7, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. The emblem is earned only by those who are imbued with the Corps' core values and have proven themselves worthy of belonging to the few and the proud. Sanabria, 20, from Allentown, Pa., is scheduled to graduate Dec. 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 of females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Cpl. Caitlin Brink)
