    Rct. Brooke Whitmire, Platoon 4038, Oscar Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, personalizes her foot locker during free time Sept. 17, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits, such as Whitmire, 18, from West Columbia, S.C., can decorate the inside of their foot lockers with photos and letters to keep them motivated during training. Free time, which is restricted to inside the barracks, is an hour where recruits are given the opportunity to read and write letters, unwind and prepare themselves and their equipment for the next day. Oscar Company is scheduled to graduate Nov. 7, 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)
