Rct. Hunter Meadows, an 18-year-old native of Clayton, N.C., is currently training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C., in hopes of earning the title of United States Marine. Meadows is training with Platoon 1065, Alpha Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, and is scheduled to graduate Sept. 19, 2014. “They (Marines) seem to make themselves the best of the best, and it’s been a dream of mine since I was little,” said Meadows, a June 2014 graduate of Clayton High School. 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 for females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Cpl. David Bessey)
