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

Lance Cpl. Alejandro Pena, an air traffic control communication technician serving with Marine Air Control Squadron 1, studies the physical characteristics of the M2 .50-caliber machine gun during the non-infantry machine gunner's course at 1st Marine Division Schools here, Jan. 9, 2013. Pena, a 24-year-old native of Corona, Calif., said the .50-cal was his favorite weapon because it could destroy aerial targets as well as ground targets.
