Rct. Brenon Sarratori, Platoon 3053, Kilo Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, strengthens his core muscles during a physical training circuit course April 29, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits such as Sarratori, a 19-year-old native of Buffalo, N.Y., experience many different types of training meant to strengthen their bodies to pass the physical and combat fitness tests as well as meet the Marine Corps’ high physical standards. Kilo Company is scheduled to graduate July 11, 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. MaryAnn Hill)
