Recruits of Platoon 4023, November Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, wait for the next command from their drill instructor during their final drill evaluation June 25, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. During the evaluation, recruits performed a series of precision drill movements and could only move when directed to do so. November Company is scheduled to graduate July 3, 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)
