    Sgt. Angela Arounerangsy, a Marine Corps martial arts instructor, and Sgt. Daniela Sosa, a drill instructor of Platoon 4011, demonstrate how to get out of a headlock to recruits of Oscar Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, on Jan. 30, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Arounerangsy, a 27-year-old Miami native, explained how each technique could be used in combat. Sosa, is a 26-year-old native of Santa Ana, Calif. The Marine Corps Martial Arts Program combines hand-to-hand combat with mental discipline and character development to help transform recruits into ethical warriors. Oscar Company is scheduled to graduate April 4, 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 Lance Cpl. Vaniah Temple)
