    Drill instructors for Platoon 3016, Lima Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, recite the Drill Instructor Pledge on Jan. 10, 2015, before taking charge of the young men they are expected to mold into Marines on Parris Island, S.C. In the pledge, drill instructors promise to train their recruits to the best of their abilities, meaning they will not give up on them even when the recruits may give up on themselves. Lima Company is scheduled to graduate April 3, 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)
