Photo Gallery: Parris Island keeps recruits busy before sunrise

Rct. Caleb Lang, left, and Rct. Jordan Fisher, help clean the floor Dec. 10, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits clean the barracks every morning and learn how cleanliness reflects their discipline as a unit. Lang, 18, from Cincinnati, and Fisher, 20, from Dayton, Ohio, are scheduled to graduate with Platoon 3009, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, on 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)
