A Marine must be constantly aware of his surroundings and available cover, should a threat appear. He should avoid obvious danger areas and move quickly through danger areas that cannot be avoided.
When moving from cover to cover, the Marine should select the next covered location and plan his route be fore moving from his present position. This is done by quickly looking from behind cover to ensure the area is clear, ensuring the head and eyes are exposed for as short a time as possible.
If necessary, the Marine should conduct a Condition 1 reload before moving from cover.
Once the Marine is committed to moving, all focus should be on moving until cover is reassumed.
