Recruits from Charlie Company take a moment to rest after completing their last event at The Crucible, Dec. 14, 2012, at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C. During the two-day event the Marines will traverse 50 or more miles while using teamwork to complete tasks set in front of them. The Crucible is one of the last obstacles recruits face before receiving the eagle, globe, and anchor along with being called a Marine for the first time.
