🇺🇸 In 1944, the progenitor to the modern U.S. Marine Corps squad composition was born. Officially dubbed the F-1 organization, the new organization included a squad leader (Sergeant), and three fireteams consisting of a team leader (Corporal), automatic rifleman (Pfc/Private) and two riflemen (Pfc/Private).
⚔️ The new layout increased the squad's firepower from two M1918 Browning Automatic Rifles to three. It also gave the squad leader more command/control within the squad. The Assistant Squad Leader (Corporal) of the early war squad layout was discarded, and the three fireteams were placed under the direct command of a corporal. This gave the squad leader and NCO to delegate tasks to, while the team leader could focus on carrying out the fire team's tasks.
⚔️ This layout is more or less similar to the modern Marine Corps squad layout. The fireteams are centered around the automatic rifle (then the M1918A2, now the M27 IAR), with riflemen (then the M1 Garand, now the M27 IAR as well).
⚔️ Although submachine guns were sometimes used, they had fallen out of favor by the US Marine Corps due to their weight and limited range. Official USMC TO&Es list the M1 Carbine as the weapon of squad leaders, platoon sergeants, and platoon leaders. The M1 Carbine, while still prevalent in the US Army in the ETO, was not officially listed in Army Rifle Squad TO&Es because the Army was still fighting at ranges where the carbine was less effective.

Get on this folks. Send them emails and calls. Data has proven that it only takes 50 calls or emails on a topic for a representative to take it serious. Statistically one call or email on a issue represents about 1000 constituents in their state or district. So, 50 equals 50,000 and that’s when it hits their radar as a issue. You can call these people your representatives if you don’t call on them to represent you. This isn’t a blind process our founders created, where you just vote them in and walk away, then get upset after the fact. You are supposed to remain part of the process as well. Call on them. Demand of them. Be up their collective asses. That’s the process by design. Don’t blame others and them for your laziness. Take ownership or shut up. I’ve been political my entire life and adult life. I never let up and I’m not a voting cycle political person, who goes onto hibernation every two years. Shit, I vote from my HOA level to my president, and all the between. It matters. School boards for example, then effect you a lot. They waste your money and then lobby for more. Hold them accountable and vote them out. I’ve had bad lefty stupid HOA people voted out, because I put them on others radar. The people you see in higher office, then sometimes start at the smallest local levels, mastering their graft and leaving destruction behind. If you stop them now, block their path and trajectory, you win for the future. So take ownership and get involved. Stop the Netflix and send an email, make a call. #Arizona#guns#firearms#constitution#attorneygeneral#voteno#redflag#redflaglaws#nra#nrasucks#AZSenate#2ndamendment#secondamendment#2A#billofrights#liberty#freedom#rifle#lawenforcement
We’re living one big horrible meme this year I swear... It’s like they just tortured a hardline 2A supporter into telling the lawmakers his worst fears and now they’re trying to act on them all. Taken before due process from the brilliant lot over at @gunpolicy
