    New recruits of Mike Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, stand in front of the receiving building Oct. 22, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Upon arriving to the island, new recruits remain awake for approximately 24 hours as they receive training gear and finalize their in-processing. Mike Company is scheduled to graduate Jan. 17, 2014. 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)
