  • Rct. Spencer Daniels, Platoon 1042, Bravo Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, struggles to perform his last pullup during an initial strength test March 28, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. The recruits had to do at least two pullups to pass this portion of the test. The initial strength test is the recruits' opportunity to prove themselves physically capable to withstand the demands of Marine boot camp. Daniels, a 21-year-old from Madison, Miss., is scheduled to graduate June 20, 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. Octavia Davis)
