Recruits wake up at 4 a.m. and immediately begin their morning routine of shaving and cleaning the barracks. Drill instructors stress attention to detail and cleanliness early in training to instill discipline in recruits. India Company is scheduled to graduate Feb. 14, 2014. Parris Island has been the site of Marine Corps recruit training since Nov. 1, 1915.
