‘Every Marine a rifleman,’ some push for machine-gunner

Marines serving with Marine Air Support Squadron 3, work together to draw key objects in the terrain to help identify their targets during the range cards portion of the non-infantry machine gunner’s course at 1st Marine Division Schools here, Jan. 9, 2013. Once their targets were drawn, they would give their range cards to the next team and had them identify and simulate firing on the targets. This portion of the course simulated trading places with another machine-gunner while adjusting fire using his range card. (Official United States Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Corey Dabney.)
