    Corporal Zackary Salaun, an anti-tank missileman serving with 1st Battalion, 4th Marine regiment, runs to the finish line during a combat fitness test on the third day of a scout sniper screener here, Jan. 9, 2013. Marines serving with the battalion volunteered to take the screener to have a chance of becoming part of the scout sniper platoon. Upon passing the screener, Marines are selected to become a part of the platoon and are sent to Scout Sniper Basic Course once their command is confident they’re ready. The screener consists of various activities including fitness tests, academic tests and land navigation over a period of four days with a couple hours rest in between days.
