    Rct. Emily Paz, Platoon 4041, Papa Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, checks for simulated booby traps on a combat training course Oct. 28, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits learn basic field-related skills all Marines must know. These skills will be broadened during follow-on training at Camp Lejeune, N.C. Paz, 18, from Phoenix, is scheduled to graduate Nov. 21, 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)
