    Rct. Christopher Taylor and Rct. Thomas Stoddard, both with Platoon 2053, Fox Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, jump on a Confidence Course obstacle April 29, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. The Confidence Course is comprised of 15 obstacles designed to help Marine Corps recruits build self-confidence by overcoming physical and mental challenges. Taylor, a 26-year-old native of Manchester, N.H., and Stoddard, a 19-year-old native of Mechanicsburg, Pa., are scheduled to graduate July 3, 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)
