    Recruits of Kilo Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, prepare to shed their gear underwater May 12, 2014, during their water survival qualification on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits had 10 seconds to remove pieces of heavy equipment before resurfacing, a technique used to prevent drowning. 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. Caitlin Brink)
