    Recruits of Papa Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, learn about chemical and biological warfare defense Oct. 29, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits learned to don and clear their gas masks in nine seconds or less as part of this training to become confident and comfortable with using the masks in a chemically or biologically contaminated environment. Papa Company is scheduled to graduate Dec. 20, 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)
