New Marines of Fox Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, sing cadence as they participate in a motivational run Aug. 1, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. The new Marines ran 2.3 miles through the island's streets. This was the first chance for most families to get a glimpse of their new Marine in more than 12 weeks. Fox Company is scheduled to graduate Aug. 2, 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)
