PARRIS ISLAND, SC, UNITED STATES
Staff Sgt. Carlos Jones Jr. currently serves as a Marine Corps drill instructor with Delta Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C. Jones joined the Marine Corps in December 2002 and became a drill instructor in July 2012. “Being a drill instructor is something I’ve always wanted to do – to follow in the footsteps of my drill instructors and to better the Marine Corps,” said Jones, a native of Kinston, N.C. About 600 Marine Corps drill instructors shape the approximately 20,000 recruits who come to Parris Island annually into basic United States Marines. 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)
