Pvt. Charles Vanetten, Platoon 1004, Alpha Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, speaks with his drill instructors on Family Day, Jan. 23, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. The young men spent months with their DIs, who transformed them through an intense 13-week training regimen. Vanetten, a 19-year-old native of Grant, Ala., graduated 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)
