    Marine Corps announces sweeping changes to ground-combat forces

    The number of Marines in a rifle squad will be decreased from 13 to 12. The service will also add more automatic weapons, drones and all-terrain vehicles, while improving night optics, grenade launchers and shoulder-fired rockets.

    Makes sense. The added weaponry decreases the need for number
    of men.

    I am sure your theory is spot on... Haven't quite come to the conclusion that I agree with it though... Having a shoulder-fired rocket watch your back... :dunno:
