Photo Gallery:  Marine recruits learn discipline, responsibility on Parris Island

Recruits of Platoon 3009, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, clean their M16-A4 rifles Dec. 10, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits are responsible for the care and maintenance of their rifles from the moment they receive them during the first week of training. Keeping with the motto "every Marine a rifleman," recruits must know the ins and outs of their rifles because Marines are expected to be ready for combat. 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)
