Motivational writing adorns a vehicle in support of a new Marine on Aug. 15, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Some family and friends decorated vehicles in support of the new Marines of Kilo Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, and November Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion. Kilo and November Companies are scheduled to graduate Aug. 16, 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)
