  • Recruits of Bravo Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, position large bins of laundry to be weighed and processed in preparation for cleaning at the depot laundry facility Sept. 30, 2013, during team week on Parris Island, S.C. Each bin can carry loads of up to 500 pounds of clothing. The depot laundry cleans and processes thousands of pounds of recruit laundry each day to ensure recruits have fresh bed sheets and clean uniforms. Team week, the sixth week of training, allows recruits to work on their own with minimal supervision and develop leadership skills while also providing a respite from the previous five weeks of constant training.
