    Rct. Jonathon Roberts, Platoon 3054, Kilo Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, demonstrates a martial arts technique May 15, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Roberts, 20, from Ocala, Fla., performed 50 different techniques to earn a tan belt, the first level in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program. Recruits spend more than 30 hours in the early weeks of training learning and sustaining these techniques. 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)
