    Rct. Kyle Proulx, Platoon 2045, Echo Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, pushes his strength to its limit while doing crunches March 21, 2014, during a physical training session on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits performed various exercises meant to strengthen each of the main muscle groups and prepare them for the physical fitness and combat fitness tests, both of which are graduation requirements. Proulx, 20, from Mansfield, Ohio, is scheduled to graduate June 6, 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)
