A Marine Corps Sniper is defined as a Marine who has been carefully screened and selected, has undergone comprehensive training in advanced infantry and marksmanship techniques, and has been assigned MOS 8541. The sniper's training, combined with the inherent accuracy of his rifle, firmly establishes him as a valuable addition to the weapons available to the infantry commander.
