SFC Tung Nguyen Memorial Match

1flag-memorial

Members of the 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) held a memorial Excellence In Competition match for SFC Tung Nguyen at Range 65, Fort Bragg on November 20.

3D SFG(A) invited members of the U.S. Army Reserve Competition Marksmanship Program to help conduct this event as they wanted an official EIC match to be part of their memorial for SFC Nguyen.

SFC Tung M. Nguyen, 38, a Special Forces communications sergeant assigned to 2nd Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group at Fort Bragg, died Nov. 14, 2006, as a result of a gunshot wound during combat operations in Baghdad. Nguyen was born in Cantho, Vietnam, became a U.S. citizen, and was raised in Tracy, Calif. He enlisted as an infantryman in 1986.

In 1991, he reentered active duty, and served with 1st Bn., 187th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) at Fort Campbell, Ky., for one year before volunteering for Special Forces training. Nguyen began his journey to become a Special Forces Soldier in 1992 and earned the coveted Green Beret when he graduated from the course in 1993. He was assigned to 1st Special Forces Group, Fort Lewis, Wash., that year and served in all three combat battalions during his tenure there, first as a communications sergeant and then as an intelligence sergeant.

In 2003, Nguyen was chosen to become an instructor at the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School. He served in both instructor and operations positions, preparing Special Forces Soldiers for the rigors of combat, until February 2006 when he was assigned 3rd SFG where he served until his death.

Among his many awards and decorations, Nguyen was a Distinguished Pistol Shot, the winner of the 2006 Small Arms Championship Sniper Class competition, and the 2006 Joint Special Operations Command Small Arms Championship Pistol Class competition.

USARCMP members were informed by 3D SFG(A) Soldiers that, “Most members of SOF (Special Operations Forces) use competitive shooting as a training tool. Our gear looks like that used in 3-Gun because that sort of practical competition is how we set up equipment.”

Excellence In Competition, Service Conditions, and 3-Gun are all formats used by USARCMP to validate and improve marksmanship programs throughout the Army Reserve. The USARCMP is honored to have been invited to this 3D SFG(A) memorial marksmanship event for SFC Tung Nguyen.

FORSCOM Small Arms Championships 2017

The Forces Command (FORSCOM) Small Arms Championships is a comprehensive live-fire training event that tests Soldiers’ and leaders’ ability to employ individual, crew-served, sniper weapon systems, problem solve, and think critically under the stresses created by competition. While the elements and spirit of competition are important, all Soldiers are reminded that the Army’s critical intent of the competition in arms program is to develop marksmanship skills at the entry and intermediate level, recognize superior skill at the highest levels, while raising the standards of marksmanship and increasing lethality across the entire force.

23-27 October 2017.

82nd Airborne Division War Memorial Museum, Ardennes St., Bldg C-6841, Fort Bragg, NC 28307.
