    Rct. Keoshia Jackson, Platoon 4030, Papa Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, uses her compass to lead her partner through Parris Island's woods during land navigation training Aug. 19, 2013. Recruits learn how to properly read both a compass and map before venturing into the woods with their teams. Jackson, 18, from Milledgeville, Ga., is scheduled to graduate Sept. 13, 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 of females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Cpl. Caitlin Brink)
