The journey to becoming a Marine starts in boot camp. Marines learn the basic skills sets and code of conduct that will set them apart from every other service. But when it comes to combat, Marines learn their skills in Marine Combat training. Marines will use these skills to keep them and their brethren to their left and right safe when the proverbial shit hits the fan. The combat instructors at the School of Infantry use all the skills and experience they’ve gathered through their years in the Corps to fine-tune the basics the Marines learned in boot camp. Their piece of the Corps? To teach Marines how to survive in combat.
