    Rct. Darren Ringlen, Platoon 3073, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, packs extra uniforms July 21, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Each recruit’s equipment must be packed and stored a specific way. The formal 70-day training schedule begins about a week after recruits arrive on Parris Island; recruits spend the first week in-processing and learning basic procedures and expectations. Ringlen, 19, from Honolulu, is scheduled to graduate Oct. 10, 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)
