Recruits of Mike Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, prove teamwork is essential to completing the Crucible on Jan. 9, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. The coveted Eagle, Globe and Anchor is earned only by those who are imbued with the Marine Corps’ core values and have proven themselves worthy of belonging to the few and the proud. Mike Company is scheduled to graduate Jan. 17, 2014. 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 of females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Cpl. Caitlin Brink)
