    Recruits of Alpha Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, race each other during a circuit course Nov. 7, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. The recruits, representing their platoons, raced for the honor of carrying their series’ guidon, marking the best platoon in the series, a group of two to four platoons. Recruits compete throughout training to carry this guidon. Alpha Company is scheduled to graduate Jan. 24, 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 Lance Cpl. MaryAnn Hill)
