412 TEC: Rifle Postal Matches

Soldiers of the 412 Theater Engineer Commandconducted their Table I-VI training as prescribed in TC 3-22.9. As a part of the training and qualification, Maj. Jesse Campbell (PMP, Current Operations Integrating Cell (COIC) Chief / Knowledge Management Officer) led these Soldiers in Preliminary Marksmanship Instruction and conduct of the William James Sutton and Table V (Fast Run) Postal Matches.

The William Sutton Postal Match, named after former Chief, Army Reserve instrumental in establishing Army Reserve marksmanship programs, is conducted on a standard Army 25 meter range available to all Soldiers during Table IV Zeroing.

The Table V (Fast Run) Postal Match uses the Table V practice table with time limits faster than the standard Table VI qualification but run on the same range.

“I’m a competitive shooter and bring that knowledge to my Soldiers,” said Maj. Campbell. “We conducted a PMI and Table I using the PDF slide decks from the USAR Marksman’s website. Having the barricades on hand to conduct PLFS, table II, under night and CBRN conditions at home station was a huge benefit to prepare Soldiers for tables IV-VI the following Battle Assembly.”

The Soldiers found the training valuable. “That’s the most detailed PMI I have ever received in my entire Army career,” said Col. Rudy Santacroce. “The William James Sutton Postal match was easily integrated into a final check of zero and functional elements (SACM) at the 25 meter range before Soldiers moved to the pop-up range to conduct table V and VI and increased Soldier confidence considerably. The twelve rounds allocation is negligible considering.”

In addition to the 25 meter Sutton match, Soliders found the the Fast Run course useful. “That practice (Table V) is no joke,” Staff Sgt. James Wittman said.

The value of these courses is to provide improved courses. All Soldiers and Units can participate. Download at:
