Photo Gallery: Marine recruits learn ropes in first week on Parris Island

Sgt. Jessee Perard, a drill instructor with Platoon 3025, Lima Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, orders his recruits to move with speed and intensity Feb. 3, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Within their first week on the island, recruits met the drill instructors who would train them for the following 12 weeks. Drill instructors like Perard, 25, from Newark, N.J., spend their first three days with their recruits teaching boot camp procedures and expectations. Lima Company is scheduled to graduate April 25, 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)
