Marine Son Honored "Best Marksman"


He is being honored and recognized by the Brigadier General of Parris Island as the best marksman  of his Company (500 Marines) during boot camp graduation.

He scored 332 points out of a possible 350.  He hit the target with his rifle at a distance of 200, 300, 500 Yards.

He shot his rifle while standing, kneeling, sitting and laying on the ground with both slow and rapid fire.

He also received the Leatherneck award.  I know this is technical but I need to remember this.

I guess the money that we had spent on bullets did pay off.  Remember some little stuff becomes big.

The Marine story of my son will continue, since we do not know much yet??

Quite an accomplishment! I need to take him deer hunting with me when he gets out! (I missed a nice one this year :).

We are praying for the safety of our military. God bless.

Oh WOW!!! It takes such fortitude and dedication just to even be a Marine, then to win awards on top of it!! Now when you find out, I want to know what the Leatherneck award means. Can't wait to read and see more.
