    Rct. John Wikoff, Platoon 2082, Echo Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, throws his foot over a rope Oct. 3, 2013, on the Confidence Course on Parris Island, S.C. The course is comprised of 15 obstacles designed to help Marine Corps recruits build self-confidence by facing physical challenges. Wikoff, a 19-year-old native of Bolton, Mass., is scheduled to graduate Oct. 18, 2013. 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 Pfc. Vaniah Temple)
