    Rct. Jarrid Machado and Rct. Nickolas Cabral, both with Platoon 1004, Alpha Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, slide down a Confidence Course obstacle Nov. 4, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. The course is comprised of 15 obstacles, which are designed to help Marine Corps recruits build confidence by overcoming physical challenges. Machado, 18, from Berkley, Mass., and Cabral, 19, from New Bedford, Mass., are scheduled to graduate Jan. 9, 2015. 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. Jennifer Schubert)
