    Rct. Brandon Toomey, Platoon 2022, Fox Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, struggles to clear his chin above a bar during a physical training session Dec. 18, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. The session consisted of a 1.5-mile formation run followed by pullups and crunches. This was one of the first PT sessions for the recruits, introducing them to Marine Corps-style workouts and fitness standards. Toomey is a 19-year-old native of Plymouth, N.H., scheduled to graduate March 7, 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. Octavia Davis)
