Freeman and Moore won the competition in the M4 rifle and M9 pistol categories, respectively. Mercer placed in the top four in the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon category. Freeman, Moore and Mercer are part of the U.S. Army Reserve Marksmanship Team. The three-day FORSCOM competition featured 27 marksmen from the U.S. Army, U.S. Army Reserve, and the National Guard in events for the M9 pistol, the M4A1 rifle and the M249 SAW, or Squad Automatic Weapon, to recognize Soldiers who are beyond expert marksmen. The multi-tiered events challenged the competitors' ability to accurately and quickly engage targets in a variety of conditions and environments. (U.S. Army photo by Timothy L. Hale/Released)
