    Drill instructors of Bravo Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, encourage Rct. Thomas Oneil, Platoon 1046, as he jumps for a bar on an obstacle course May 14, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. The obstacle course is designed to improve recruits’ upper-body strength and develop confidence in their physical capabilities. Oneil, a 19-year-old from Brooklyn, N.Y., is scheduled to graduate June 20, 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. Octavia Davis)
