Rct. Andrew Hoesel, Platoon 1084, Bravo Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, leads his team of recruits Oct. 24, 2013, during the Crucible at the combat training area on Parris Island, S.C. During this 54-hour culminating event, recruits such as Hoesel, an 18-year-old native of Depew, N.Y., must demonstrate that they have embraced the Marine Corps’ core values of honor, courage and commitment and the essence of their warrior ethos. Bravo Company is scheduled to graduate Nov. 1, 2013. 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. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. MaryAnn Hill)
