'Every Marine a rifleman,' some push for machine-gunner

Lance Cpl. Alejandro Pena (left), an air traffic control communication technician serving with Marine Air Control Squadron 1, and Lance Cpl. Ciara Ruiz, an air support network operator serving with Marine Air Support Squadron 3, assemble the M2 .50-caliber machine gun as other members of their squad do abdominal exercises during a physical training competition as a part of non-infantry machine gunner’s course at 1st Marine Division Schools here, Jan. 9, 2013. Ruiz, a 19 year-old native of Fort Lauderdale, Fl., said this portion of the training was her favorite because it helped her learn the weapon system while competing against her peers. The training simulated the physical and mental strains of maintaining the weapon system in a stressful environment. (Official United States Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Corey Dabney.)
