21 (2) Supported Kneeling. When the prone position cannot be used because of the height
22 of the support, the supported kneeling position may be appropriate. The kneeling position
23 provides additional mobility over the prone position.
24 (a) The kneeling position allows shooting from all sides and from cover of varying
25 sizes. This position may be altered to maximize the use of cover or support by
26 assuming a variation of the kneeling position (high, medium, or low).
27 (b) In the kneeling position, the Marine must not telegraph his position behind the
28 cover with his knee. When shooting around the sides of cover, the Marine should
29 strive to keep his right knee in line with his left foot so as not to telegraph the
30 knee. See figure 6-24.
