    Sgt. Francesco Franzese, a drill instructor for Platoon 3005, Mike Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, encourages Rct. Anthony Miller Blue, Platoon 3004, to use proper form during a physical fitness session Dec. 18, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Drill instructors such as Franzese, 24, from Brodheadsville, Pa., are responsible for ensuring recruits are physically fit enough to meet the Marine Corps' high standards. Miller Blue, 18, from Philadelphia, 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)
