    Recruits of Platoon 3065, Lima Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, align themselves during their initial drill evaluation July 15, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Close-order drill enables a unit to move from one place to another in a standard, orderly manner and creating a sense of unity. Lima Company is scheduled to graduate Sept. 6, 2013. 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 for females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Cpl. Caitlin Brink)
