    Recruits of Oscar Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, work together to crawl underneath concertina wire during Basic Warrior Training July 1, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Held during the ninth week, Basic Warrior Training introduces recruits to basic field skills all Marines must know. Recruits work in teams of two or four to maneuver over and under various obstacles such as concertina wire, walls and small ponds while wearing combat equipment. The basic combat training recruits receive while on Parris Island will be broadened after boot camp at advanced training in Camp Lejeune, N.C. Oscar 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 Lance Cpl. Vaniah Temple)
