    Recruits of November Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, fire their M16-A4 rifles at close-range targets during their combat marksmanship qualification Oct. 25, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Basic combat rifle marksmanship is a crucial step in transforming recruits into proficient combat marksmen. Recruits fired a total of 50 rounds during the qualification. November Company is scheduled to graduate Nov. 15, 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 Lance Cpl. MaryAnn Hill)
