    Recruits of Golf Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, climb a rope March 8, 2014, after completing a conditioning march on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits marched approximately eight miles with 60-pound packs to condition their bodies and prepare not only for future deployments but also their last test before graduating – the Crucible. Golf Company is scheduled to graduate April 11, 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. (Photos by Lance Cpl. Vaniah Temple)
