Organization of the WWII U.S. Army Infantry Rifle Platoon

Infantry Rifle Platoon

This video introduces the platoon’s basic composition and weapons. It concentrates primarily on platoon headquarters but also takes a look at snipers, medics, and hand-held radios.
In this video I mention that the M1C is present in the final wartime “June T/O&E” (1 June 1945 T/O&E 7-17). While that is true, I want to make clear that it first replaced the M1903A4 (at least on paper) in the 30 January 1945 Change 2 to the 26 February 1944 T/O&E 7-17.
