Recruits of Platoon 4008, November Company, 4th Recruit Training Battalion, listen as a Marine marksmanship instructor teaches them about the parts of an M16-A4 rifle Jan. 27, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. The Corps’ mission is to fight and win the nation’s battles, so every Marine, regardless of gender or occupational specialty, must learn basic rifle marksmanship. 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)
