The Way It Was

A 1960s Marine Corps film on marksmanship utilizing the M-14. If you want to be a better long distance shot, nothing about this video is outdated except the film techniques.

Dig that music, man. Crazy!

So, every rifleman is issued an oven mitt, but no hearing protection?

Everything was in meters by 1968. Where are the screaming DIs? :-)

That black DI demonstrating the trigger pull looked a lot like the one in my platoon, might have been the same guy.

I have to say I don't remember anything about hearing or eye protection although the lack would seem criminal now. No wonder I have tinnitus.
