Lance Cpl. Alfredo Sanchez, a range coach, speaks with recruits of Fox Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, during the recruits’ marksmanship training Jan. 27, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Every Marine must know how to shoot a rifle, and Sanchez, a 20-year-old native of Long Beach, Calif., is one of about 200 Marines on the island tasked with developing recruits into the Corps’ next generation of proficient riflemen. 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)
