Sgt. Stephan Bacchus, a drill instructor for Platoon 3014, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, disciplines his recruits for not paying attention in class Jan. 21, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Drill instructors like Bacchus, 23, from East Stroudsburg, Pa., use incentive training to instill discipline and motivation while correcting minor disciplinary infractions. 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)
