    Rct. Jessica Etheridge helps Rct. Nicole Compton, both with Platoon 4039, Oscar Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, with her hair during their free time Sept. 17, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Each day, recruits receive one hour of free time, which is restricted to inside the barracks, to read and write letters, unwind and prepare equipment for the next day. Etheridge, 18, from Longview, Texas, and Compton, 18, from Bremerton, Wash., are 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)
