The Military Occupational Specialty of 0311 is for the Infantry Rifleman Scout. The mission of the Rifleman is to locate, close with, and destroy the enemy by fire and maneuver, and to repel the enemy’s attack by fire and close combat. This is the mission of the Infantry Rifle Squad and Platoon as well.
Infantry Riflemen are what the entirety of the rest of the Marine Corps exists to support. We are the Trigger Pullers, the door kickers, the ground pounders, and the reason why the Marien Corps exists. I enlisted to be a Rifleman to get in the fight and take it to the enemy. I am honored to have earned the title of Grunt, and to have served with thousands of grunts during my time on Active Duty.
