    PARRIS ISLAND, S.C. - We ask recruits currently in training why they decided to endure 13 weeks of boot camp to earn the title of United States Marine. Here’s what one said:

    Rct. Denzel Ausborne, a 20-year-old native of Lexington, N.C., is currently training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C., in hopes of earning the title of United States Marine. Ausborne is training with Platoon 3053, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, and is scheduled to graduate Aug. 2, 2013. “I needed the brotherhood. I didn’t grow up in a good neighborhood, so I decided to join so I could right my life. I have a family, so I needed something to get my family on track as well,” said Ausborne. 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 Lance Cpl. Caitlin Brink)
