Photo Gallery: Parris Island keeps recruits busy before sunrise

Sgt. Juan Ponce Jr., a drill instructor for Platoon 3009, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, supervises morning cleanup Dec. 10, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits must be lined up and at the position of attention to receive new orders from the drill instructors as soon as their areas are clean. Ponce, 28, is from Gadsden, Ala. India Company is scheduled to graduate Feb. 14, 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)
