Marines take rare chance to fire missiles

Sergeant Johnny Jernigan, an anti-tank missileman with 2nd Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, from Whiteville, N.C., and Cpl. James Darius, also an anti-tank missileman with the unit, from Rally, N.C., run to the firing line to fire a FGM-148 Javelin during a live fire training exercise aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Aug. 29, 2013. With a single missile for the javelin costing approximately $80,000, it is not easy shooting all the time, said Chief Warrant Officer 2 Eric M. Brown, the battalion gunner, of Millwood, W.Va.
