Every year 19,000 young men and women travel to Parris Island, S.C., to pursue the title of United States Marine. The rigorous training challenges them to push past their old physical and mental limits in order to become something more. Not all those that begin the journey finish, but for those that do, they will for ever be instilled with a sense of accomplishment and pride.
