Cpl. Virgilio Bugarinahnee Jr., right, a marksmanship coach, assists Rct. Miles Cabrera, Platoon 2022, Fox Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, with his rifle Jan. 27, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C., during rifle marksmanship training. For many recruits, this was their first time firing a weapon, so Marines like Bugarinahnee, a 23-year-old native of Honolulu, ensure recruits learn proper weapons handling and safety prior to firing. 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. Cabrera, is a 21-year-old from Queens, N.Y., and is scheduled to graduate March 7, 2014. (Photo by Cpl. Octavia Davis)
