Marines enhance marksmanship skills to become coaches

15 Sep 2011 | Lance Cpl. Joshua B. Young

Marines from various units and military occupations train to become Marine marksmanship coaches here, Sept. 14.

During the three-week Formal Marksmanship Training Course, Marines learn a variety of skills, such as shooting positions, types of slings and how to coach other Marines.

The Marines must have a high marksmanship score on the range before they can qualify for the coaches’ course.  After completion, the new coaches return to their units to make better riflemen, according to Sgt. Jerome E. Hutcheson, a 29-year-old FMTC instructor from Fort. Lauderdale, Fla.

As a coach, Marines must know how to shoot the weapon and communicate clearly to students about marksmanship techniques.

 “You are learning how to correct the [Marines] instead of just being the shooter,” said Cpl. Daniel Moore, a 22-year-old FMTC student from Monticello, Ark .

Every Marine qualifies on the range once a year to make sure they are capable of accurately firing a weapon while using the proper techniques and safety measures.

“Every marine is a rifleman, therefore if we have qualified instructors coaching Marines to become better rifleman, the Marine Corps is a better place to be in than any other place in the world,” said Hutcheson.
