    PARRIS ISLAND, S.C. - Only about 600 Marine Corps drill instructors shape the approximately 20,000 recruits who come to Parris Island annually into basic United States Marines. This handful of dedicated DIs is entrusted with sustaining a more than 237-year legacy by transforming men and women into the next generation of Marines. This is one of those drill instructors.

Gonzalez joined the Marine Corps in July 1999 and became a drill instructor in December 2012. Gonzalez is a native of Kennewick. Wash. About 600 Marine Corps drill instructors shape the approximately 20,000 recruits who come to Parris Island annually into basic United States Marines.
