Photo Gallery: Marine recruits pass test of discipline, bearing on Parris Island

Rct. Taylor Harris, Platoon 3042, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, performs a close-order drill movement, during a final drill evaluation June 4, 2014on Parris Island, S.C. Close-order drill helps transform recruits into Marines by developing teamwork and unit cohesion while instilling discipline by teaching habits of precision and immediate response to orders. Harris, 21, from Panama City, Fla., is scheduled to graduate June 13, 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)
