    Rct. Logan Borgelt, Platoon 1068, Alpha Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, slides across a Confidence Course obstacle Sept. 5, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. On this obstacle, recruits slide down a rope, changing position twice while suspended over a small pond. The course is comprised of 15 obstacles designed to help Marine Corps recruits build confidence by overcoming physical challenges. Borgelt, 18, from Louisville, Ky., is scheduled to graduate Sept. 19, 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)
