Glenda McCool, mother of U.S. Marine Corps Pfc. Sean G. McCool, Platoon 2044, Golf Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, kisses her son after he is dismissed by his senior drill instructor following graduation June 9, 2017, on Parris Island, S.C. McCool, 19, from Sharpsburg, Ga., the seventh Marine in his family, earned the distinction of being his platoon’s honor graduate. Today, approximately 19,000 recruits come to Parris Island annually for the chance to become United States Marines by enduring 12 weeks of rigorous, transformative training. Parris Island is home to entry-level enlisted training for approximately 49 percent of male recruits and 100 percent of female recruits in the Marine Corps. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl.
