    Recruits of Hotel Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, remove heavy equipment underwater during water survival qualification March 10, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits learn to take off heavy gear while submerged in 10 seconds or less to prevent drowning. Hotel Company is scheduled to graduate May 9, 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 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)
