    Staff Sgt. Gerren Means, senior drill instructor for Platoon 3013, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, supervises his recruits as they race up a Confidence Course obstacle Dec. 10, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. The course, comprised of 15 obstacles designed to help Marine Corps recruits build confidence by overcoming physical challenges, closely resembles the original version built in the mid-1960s. Drill instructors such as Means, 26, from Montgomery, Ala., encourage recruits to complete obstacles that may cause their courage to waiver. 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)
