    Rct. April Wilson, a 19-year-old native of Danville, Va., is currently training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C., in hopes of earning the title of United States Marine. Wilson is training with Platoon 4012, Papa Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, and is scheduled to graduate April 25, 2014. “I decided to join the United States Marine Corps to gain confidence, self-discipline and mental strength and to be something greater than an average American citizen. I was born to defend my country and bring pride to my family. The United States Marine Corps is my calling,” said Wilson, who graduated from Dan River High School in Ringgold, Va., in 2013. 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 Cpl. Caitlin Brink)
