    Sgt. Kingsley Nwasu, right, a drill instructor for Platoon 1005, Alpha Company, 1st Training Battalion, reminds Rct. Dwayne Talley, Platoon 1000, the proper technique to climb a rope during the Crucible on Jan. 17, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Nwasu, a 25-year-old Houston native, and his fellow drill instructors acted less like disciplinarians and more like mentors during the Crucible, the 54-hour challenge that would determine if the young men were ready to become U.S. Marines. Talley, a 21-year-old Norlina, N.C., native, is scheduled to graduate Jan. 24, 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)
