    Sgt. Richard Mainville, a drill instructor for Platoon 2088, Golf Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, shows his recruit, Rct. Tchaa Azoumaro, the correct way to march Sept. 5, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Drill instructors, such as Mainville, 28, from Tampa, Fla., use close-order drill to teach recruits discipline, teamwork and respect for authority. Azoumaro, a 25-year-old native of Lome, Togo, was recruited from the Atlanta area and is scheduled to be naturalized Nov. 20, 2014. Golf Company is scheduled to graduate Nov. 21, 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)
