    A tear rolls down the cheek of Pfc. Jesus Cardenas, Platoon 3086, Kilo Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, after he earned his Eagle, Globe and Anchor emblem and the title Marine on Oct. 25, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Only those imbued with the Corps’ core values can earn the title Marine. Cardenas, 19, from Queens, N.Y., is scheduled to graduate Oct. 31, 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)
