    Family and friends line the streets of Parris Island, S.C., in support of their new Marines during the motivational run of Hotel Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, and November Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, on Aug. 6, 2015. This was the first chance for most families to get a glimpse of their new Marines in more than 12 weeks. Both companies are scheduled to graduate Aug. 7, 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 approximately 50 percent of males and 100 percent of females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Sgt. Jennifer Schubert)
