Rct. Michael Taylor, Platoon 2013, Echo Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, searches for a shirt inside the clothing warehouse Dec. 11, 2013, on Parris Island, S .C. The recruits received several uniforms that would be tailored before they get to wear them as Marines. Taylor, an 18-year-old native of Cresco, Pa., is scheduled to graduate Jan. 31, 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)
