    Rct. Michael Anderson uses Rct. Kevin Cornet to demonstrate a leg sweep during a martial arts qualification June 12, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Anderson, 19, from Erial, N.J., and Cornet, 22, from Poughkeepsie, N.Y., each demonstrated 50 different techniques throughout the test to earn tan belts, the first level in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program. Recruits spend more than 30 hours learning and sustaining these techniques. Anderson and Cornet are scheduled to graduate with Platoon 2057, Golf Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, on Aug. 8, 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)
