    Rct. Christopher Pagan, Platoon 3086, Kilo Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, adjusts his sling after firing on a rifle range Sept. 19, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Shooters use slings to help keep a stable firing position. Pagan, 18, from Carteret, N.J., fired approximately 480 rounds from the M16-A4 during his week on the rifle range. Recruits spend four days honing their shooting skills before qualifying with the M16-A4. India Company 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 of females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Cpl. Caitlin Brink)
