Missing the mark: Top marksmen say military funding cuts impair teams

This article is about the Navy marksmanship program but resonates with all military shooting programs.

“The Navy, in my opinion, is less focused on marksmanship because of our technology. However, when it comes down to it, basic marksmanship not only goes with shooting, it’s a way of life.”

“A lot of our guys, myself included, find ourselves doing things we never thought we would be doing in the Navy, like walking the streets in Fallujah or going through a village in Afghanistan with an M16 or a 9mm. Even in the fleet, weapons proficiency and aim is key.”
