    Recruits of November Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, study Marine Corps history Aug. 18, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Lessons cover topics like the Marine Corps’ founding in 1775, the first woman to become a Marine in 1918 and recent operations to prepare them for their future as Marines. The Marine Corps’ more than 238-year legacy sets an example for recruits and Marines. November Company is scheduled to graduate Oct. 24, 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)
