Members of the O’Connor JROTC Unit Rifle Team traveled to the national Air Force marksmanship competition this past weekend. The team enjoyed success as the collective team members finished in 10th place overall out of the 25 teams who earned their qualification for the competition.
However, one individual, Tyler Cameron shot his way to the national championship for all services to be held during March 21-23. The meet will be held in Anniston, Alabama.
The U. S. Army Cadet Command, TECOM, the Naval Service Training Command, AFOATS and the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) jointly conduct this competition.
When competing competitors fire at targets at a distance of 10 meters in three different positions, prone, standing and kneeling.
The Civilian Marksmanship Program provides cadets in the JROTC Unit Rifle Team the ability to learn precision and skills in the use of weapons in a safe and structured environment.
