    Recruits of Platoon 2020, Golf Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, perform a close-order drill movement during a final drill evaluation March 4, 2015, on Parris Island, S.C. The strict, particular nature of close-order drill teaches discipline and reinforces teamwork in recruits. Golf Company is scheduled to graduate March 13, 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 Pfc. Vanessa Austin)
