    Sgt. Ebru Kisnak, a drill instructor of Platoon 4003, November Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, makes note of a discrepancy on a scoring sheet during her platoon's senior drill instructor inspection Nov. 23, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits are inspected three times, at the end of each phase of training, to prove they grasped the basic knowledge from that part of training and possess discipline, bearing, attention to detail and confidence. Recruits may be set back at this point in training if they do not demonstrate they're ready to continue training. Kisnak is a 27-year-old native of Trenton, N.J. November 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)
