PARRIS ISLAND, SC, UNITED STATES
Recruits of Platoon 3009, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, organize their equipment and uniform items shortly after reveille Dec. 10, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits are responsible for keeping their training equipment displayed according to precise instructions given by their drill instructors. This encourages discipline in recruits by requiring them to pay attention to detail. India Company is scheduled to graduate Feb. 14, 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)
