    U.S. Marine Corps Rct. Avery G. Hackett of Platoon 3045, Lima Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, acts as a simulated combat casualty during an obstacle course June 8, 2017, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits like Hackett, 19, a native of Boaz, Ky., must complete the 54-hour event known as the Crucible to earn the title Marine. Parris Island has been the site of Marine Corps recruit training since Nov. 1, 1915. Today, approximately 19,000 recruits come to Parris Island annually for the chance to become United States Marines by enduring 12 weeks of rigorous, transformative training. Parris Island is home to entry-level enlisted training for approximately 49 percent of male recruits and 100 percent of female recruits in the Marine Corps.
