Photo Gallery: Marine recruits survive first night on Parris Island Cpl. Caitlin Brink

Sgt. Randdy Flores, a receiving drill instructor, shouts orders to the newest recruits of India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, during their first night of training July 29, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Flores, 25, from Lakewood, Colo., is one of a handful of drill instructors responsible for preparing recruits for training. This first stressful night comes as a shock for most as they deal with sleep deprivation, learning new rules and ferocious drill instructors. India Company is scheduled to graduate Oct. 25, 2013. 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 for females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Cpl. Caitlin Brink)
