    Recruits of Oscar Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, complete firing drills during combat marksmanship training Sept. 27, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits go through a series of shooting and reloading drills 25 and 100 yards away from their targets. Combat marksmanship training gives recruits a basic understanding of practical shooting concepts, such as firing quickly at moving and multiple targets. Oscar Company is scheduled to graduate Oct. 18, 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 Pfc. Vaniah Temple)
