    Cpl. Joseph Marrazzo, a marksmanship coach, observes the shots of recruits of Fox Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, during marksmanship training Jan. 27, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Marrazzo, 22, spent five days with the recruits, correcting and improving their rifle shooting skills. Marrazzo is from Wilton, Conn. Only about 200 Marines on Parris Island are tasked with training nearly 20,000 recruits annually on the fundamentals of rifle marksmanship and ensuring the Corps’ next generation of riflemen is equipped with the basic knowledge and skill necessary to be part of the world’s most elite fighting force. 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)
