    Recruits of Platoon 2062, Golf Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, march during an initial drill evaluation June 16, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Drillmasters, experts on the Marine Corps Drill and Ceremonies Manual, grade recruits on their discipline, bearing and attention to detail. Close-order drill is a key element of Marine Corps recruit training because it helps instill self-discipline, obedience to orders and unit pride. Golf Company is scheduled to graduate 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 Lance Cpl. Vaniah Temple)
