    Recruits of Platoon 3044, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, look at a well-made bed March 25, 2014, so they know how theirs is expected to look while training on Parris Island, S.C. Everything from the way training equipment is arranged to the exact placement of personal items must be uniform at all times. Throughout training, drill instructors stress the importance of attention to detail to their recruits. India Company is scheduled to graduate June 13, 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 Cpl. Caitlin Brink)
