Photo Gallery: Marine recruits introduced to combat shooting on Parris Island

Recruits of Oscar Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, conduct firing drills during combat marksmanship training Aug. 8, 2013, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits conducted a series of shooting and reloading drills at 25 and 100 yards away from their targets. Combat marksmanship training gives recruits a basic understanding for practical shooting in combat, such as firing quickly at moving or multiple targets. Oscar Company is scheduled to graduate Aug. 30, 2013. 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. (Lance Cpl. David Bessey)
