Photo Gallery: Marine recruits learn to rappel on Parris Island

Rct. Josh Wallace, 21, Platoon 2048, Fox Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, slides down a rope during fast rope training May 13, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Fast roping simulates rapid deployment from hovering helicopters and is also used to help instill confidence in recruits before rappelling down the 47-foot tower. Wallace, a native of Farmville, Va., is scheduled to graduate July 3, 2014. 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. David Bessey)
