    Recruits of Platoon 1050, Charlie Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, march during an initial close-order drill evaluation June 2, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Close-order drill develops recruits’ attention to detail while instilling discipline and unit cohesion. The platoons will be evaluated again a week before graduation to gauge their improvement as a platoon. Charlie Company is scheduled to graduate July 25, 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)
