Recruits of Platoon 3037, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, march during an initial drill evaluation March 23, 2015, on Parris Island, S.C. The strict, particular nature of close-order drill teaches habits of discipline and reinforces teamwork in recruits. India Company is scheduled to graduate May 15, 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)
