Marine Corps Training Depot – Parris Island, South Carolina
The United States Marine Corps is world-renowned for its distinguished service. Marines have been the first to fight in nearly every major war fought by the United States. The saying, “The marines have landed, and the situation is well in hand,” is well known in the military.
 
Marines are highly trained. The majority of marines receive their basic training at the Parris Island Marine Corps Depot in South Carolina. The U.S. Marine Corps established its first post on Parris Island in 1891. Today, the Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot trains all of the male marine recruits east of the Mississippi River. Additionally, all female marine recruits nationwide are trained there.
 
The Parris Island Marine Corps Depot covers 8,500 acres, and lies about six miles south of Beaufort, South Carolina. The island is connected to the mainland by Horse Island Bridge and several causeways. Parris Island is one of the most visited military facilities in the world, hosting more than 100,000 visitors each year. Alexander Parris, the public treasurer of South Carolina during the 1700s, once owned the island.
