    Drill instructors with Platoon 3010, Kilo Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, stalk about the barracks moments before ordering their recruits out of bed to begin their first official training day Dec. 11, 2014, Parris Island, S.C. Recruits spent the first hour getting dressed, cleaning their barracks, and finally, eating a nutritious breakfast. The formal 70-day training schedule begins about a week after recruits arrive on Parris Island; recruits spend the first week in-processing and learning basic procedures and expectations. Kilo Company is scheduled to graduate Feb. 27, 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 Sgt. Caitlin Brink)
