Photo Gallery: Parris Island marksmanship instructors aim to make Marine Corps’ next generation of riflemen

Sgt. Carl Clegg Jr., a primary marksmanship instructor, teaches the recruits of Platoon 4008, November Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, about the parts of an M16-A4 rifle Jan. 27, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Clegg, a 28-year-old native of Whitmire, S.C., is one of many marksmanship instructors responsible for teaching recruits what every Marine must learn to do – accurately shoot a rifle. Recruits spend more than two of their 13 weeks on Parris Island learning basic rifle marksmanship, making this training the longest of any branch of service. (Photo by Cpl. Octavia Davis)
