Marines Take First Step to Become Scout Snipers
Carl | January 25, 2013
Marines serving with the 1st Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, volunteered to take a scout sniper 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.
Cpl. Kyle Janssen, Scout Sniper, Emmetsburg, Iowa, is interviewed.
