Photo Gallery: Marine recruits one day closer to graduation on Parris Island

Recruits of Platoon 3009, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, fold laundry during free time Dec. 10, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Each day, recruits receive one hour of free time, which is restricted to inside the barracks, to write letters, unwind and prepare their equipment for the next training day. 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)
