    Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island

    Sgt. Joseph Boucher, a drill instructor of Platoon 1068, Delta Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, presents Rct. Dylan Yagle with an Eagle, Globe and Anchor during the emblem ceremony Sept. 7, 2013, at the Iwo Jima flag raising statue on Parris Island, S.C. This is the first time drill instructors such as Boucher, a 27-year-old native of Kingston, N.H., call their recruits Marines. Yagle, an 18-year-old native of Fort Mill, S.C., is the third Marine in his family, following in the footsteps of his brother, Capt. Austin Yagle, and his father, Andrew Yagle, a retired sergeant major. Delta Company 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 for females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Lance Cpl. MaryAnn Hill)
