    Staff Sgt. Brady St. Romain, senior drill instructor for Platoon 3001, Mike Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, speaks with his recruits for the first time Oct. 26, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. St. Romain, 28, from Lake Charles, La., told his recruits what would be expected of them during their journey to become Marines and also what to expect from the Marines who would train them. 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)
