QUANTICO, Va. - The Marine Corps has debuted a new hub designed to centralize much of the information Marines rely on to carry out their duties.

The Infantry Weapons Information Tool was launched this month to increase communication and support the needs of Marines.

The website is inspired by social media and video games, featuring an interface similar to the "Call of Duty" video game.

It includes technical doctrine, training manuals, and instructional videos.

Accessing physical copies of training manuals can be difficult.

The new site centralizes training and safety information, allowing Marines to learn about their gear from anywhere.
