Staff Sgt. Jonathon Roque and Sgt. Brandon Kelley from the 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment won the 17th annual International Sniper Competition held at Ft. Benning, Georgia last week. There were 29 teams from around the world, both military and law enforcement, competing in this year’s event. A team from the US Army National Guard placed second and a team from the US Coast Guard placed third.
This event is one of the most prestigious events of its kind in the world. The teams are tested in all of the traditional sniper disciplines including marksmanship, stalking, target detection and other skills over a four day period. Congratulations are in store for this years winning team. Oh, BTW, we love the M24 that is a part of the winning trophy on display.
