PARRIS ISLAND, S.C. – Only about 600 Marine Corps drill instructors shape the approximately 20,000 recruits who come to Parris Island annually into basically training United States Marines.

“Based on my experiences in the Marine Corps, I wanted to be a part of shaping the new generation of female Marines. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience to be selfless every single second of every single minute of every single day to train these recruits to become United States Marines.”
