    Rct. Dakota Matheny, Platoon 3084, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, pulls himself over an elevated log on an obstacle course Aug. 19, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. The course is one of many endurance-building tools for Marine recruits. Matheny, 18, from Clarksburg, W.Va., 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)
