Tampa, Fla., native training at Parris Island to become U.S. Marine

Rct. Triston Morrison-Price, a 20-year-old native of Tampa, Fla., is currently training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C., in hopes of earning the title of United States Marine. Bishop is training with Platoon 3049, Kilo Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, and is scheduled to graduate July 11, 2014. “I worked at an oil field for the past two years and wanted to move up in my career, so I decided to join the Marine Corps to go to college and work on getting my degrees. I also yearned for the discipline, respect and brotherhood present in the Marine Corps. By joining, I get to defend my country while accepting the challenge few do and preparing for my future,” said Morrison-Price, who graduated from Alonso High School in Tampa, in 2012. 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)
