    Staff Sgt. Matthew Tovar, senior drill instructor for Platoon 3093, Lima Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, listens to his recruits’ explanations on moral, mental and physical courage Sept. 18, 2014, during a core values guided discussion on Parris Island, S.C. Tovar, 27, from Los Angeles, stressed the importance of knowing the difference between right and wrong. Core values guided discussions are an essential part of the recruit transformation as they help recruits embrace the true essence of being a Marine. Lima Company is scheduled to graduate Nov. 26, 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)
