Marines May Add Assistant Squad Leaders

The Marine Corps is looking to add assistant squad leaders to infantry units to fly unmanned aircraft, said Commandant Gen. Robert Neller.

“One of the things we’re looking at right now is providing every infantry squad an assistant squad leader,” Neller told reporters. “He would be the Marine that would fly the squad’s UAVs [unmanned aerial vehicles] and help the squad leader manage the information. We’re going to find out: Can the squad leader handle all of that.” more
