  • (11b) Infantryman

    Riflemen, who make up the bulk of the Infantry, are the U.S. Army Infantrymen. These Soldiers are disciplined and courageous. They have extremely high morale and they absolutely do not quit. They understand the Core Values that are at the heart of the Army and are so crucial to a mission's success that the Infantry is known as the "Queen of Battle".

    To make the Rifleman even more versatile in all types of combat environments, they are equipped with a variety of rifles, grenades and other weaponry. The purpose of the Rifleman is to complete his mission, give covering fire and, when organized into Fire Teams, act as a maneuver element to execute the Squad Leader's plan.
