    PARRIS ISLAND, S.C. - Young men from across the eastern United States stepped on Parris Island’s legendary yellow footprints Aug. 26, 2013, to begin their journey to the title of United States Marine.

    Vehicles loaded with soon-to-be recruits began arriving at Parris Island’s receiving building at 6 p.m., and continued to trickle in throughout the next few days. The first night comes as a shock for most as they deal with stress, sleep deprivation, new rules and ferocious drill instructors. Kilo Company is scheduled to graduate Nov. 22, 2013
