    Sgt. Dwayne Martin-Farley currently serves as a Marine Corps drill instructor with India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C. Martin-Farley joined the Marine Corps in October 2005 and became a drill instructor in September 2011. “I wanted to give back to the Marine Corps after all the great experiences it gave me,” said Martin-Farley. “I wanted to have an impact on the younger generation of Marines. When I see a young individual go from self-centered to within three months transitioning into a very selfless individual who cares more about others than themselves, I know I’ve done my job.” Martin-Farley, 27, is from Apopka, Fla. About 600 Marine Corps drill instructors shape the approximately 20,000 recruits who come to Parris Island annually into basic United States Marines. 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)
