Sgt. Michael Ludwig, a swim instructor, introduces the recruits of Charlie Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, and Oscar Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, to water survival techniques they will perform during their assessment Feb. 3, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Ludwig, a 29-year-old native of Lawrenceville, N.J., and several other Marine swim instructors taught the recruits potentially lifesaving techniques and provided extra instruction to those who struggled or lacked experience. Every recruit must pass the swim qualification to graduate. Charlie and Oscar Companies are scheduled to graduate April 4, 2014. (Photo by Cpl. Octavia Davis)
