In Flanders fields the poppies blow      Between the crosses, row on row,   That mark our place; and in the sky   The larks, still bravely singing, flyScarce heard amid the guns below.We are the Dead. Short days agoWe lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,   Loved and were loved, and now we lie         In Flanders fields.Take up our quarrel with the foe:To you from failing hands we throw   The torch; be yours to hold it high.   If ye break faith with us who dieWe shall not sleep, though poppies grow         In Flanders fields.

130618-M-FS592-072 on Flickr.Rct. Chad Jones, Platoon 3049, India Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, lifts a 30-pound ammunition can during a Marine Corps combat fitness test June 18, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Jones, 22, from Orlando, Fla., had two minutes to lift the can as many times as possible. He needed to raise the can 91 times to earn a perfect score on this portion of the test. The CFT, which simulates the wide range of physical challenges one might face in combat, evaluates strength, stamina, agility and coordination. Kilo Company is scheduled to graduate July 3, 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 for females in the Marine Corps. (Photo by Lance Cpl. Caitlin Brink)
