100 Years of Women in the Marine Corps

The year 2018 marks the centennial of women in the Corps. Let's celebrate the fewer and the prouder by learning about women in Marine Corps history.

Foot Patrol at the School of Infantry

While attending the School of Infantry (SOI), Marines will be instructed on how to conduct foot patrols in both urban and rural environments. Learning the proper techniques of foot patrolling is a critical component to becoming a rifleman, as patrolling is a key element of asserting combat power and gaining battlefield dominance to accomplish the mission.
