    Chief drill instructor Staff Sgt. Marco Ibarra and drill instructor Staff Sgt. Beatriz Bautista, encourage Rct. Jeffrey Alexander, Platoon 1033, Alpha Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, to be louder during his first moments inside the receiving building March 3, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Ibarra, a 33-year-old from Houston, and Bautista, a 27-year-old from Arlington, Va., ensured recruits adapted to the fast-paced, strict nature of recruit training. Alexander, an 18-year-old from Jackson, Miss., is scheduled to graduate May 30, 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 Octavia Davis)
