Cpl. Christopher Savage, a combat instructor with Combat Instructor Company, Instructor Battalion, instructs 2nd Lt. Jacob Lovelady, a student with 5th platoon, Alpha Co., The Basic School, in the proper technique to throw a hand grenade. The M67 fragmentation grenade isn't very heavy, it only weighs 14 ounces or about the same as a soda can, it is still important that Marines orient their bodies in the proper way to hit the target accurately.
