School of Infantry: Infantry Training Battalion

[Marine 1]:
Although graduation is at the end of recruit training, it's the beginning of their Marine Corps careers.  The next step of training is the School of Infantry.

[Marine 2]:
Every Marine is a rifleman.

[Marine 3]:
Every Marine is a rifleman.

[Marine 2]:
The School of Infantry is a training school for all Marines.  It offers two different courses, the Marine Combat Training and the Infantry Training Battalion.  Infantry Marines will go the Infantry Training Battalion which provides all basic infantry skills and some advanced infantry skills to Marines who are going out to the fleet.

[Candidate 1]:
It's been exciting, it's been a thrill, it's been a rush for me.  You get to be with your friends, you get an education.  You learn something new everyday at the Marine Corps.  It's given me a drive, it's given me a motivation.  Now I am actually making steps and making an effort to accomplish what I had set for myself.
