    New recruits of Lima Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, look through a bin of items they will use throughout training Sept. 16, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits are issued everything they will need during training, from socks to toothpaste. Unnecessary items, such as their civilian clothing, are placed into storage until the week of graduation. Lima Company is scheduled to graduate Dec. 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)
