    Rct. Temeshia Morris, Platoon 4026, Papa Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, sprints with weighted ammunition cans during a physical fitness session July 9, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits perform various exercises meant to strengthen the main muscle groups and prepare them for the physical fitness and combat fitness tests, both of which are graduation requirements. Morris, 20, from Atlanta, 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 Cpl. Caitlin Brink)
