My name is PVT Matthew Sweeney. I have just completed my first US Army Small Arms Championship as a Range Officer (RO). This was my first Army Small Arms Championship I have completed as a RO. It was a great experience for the competitors, as well as a training experience. I enjoyed watching the Soldiers apply the training they have received and put into use during a competition. I believe the soldiers shot very well and had a great time. My experience in the match as an RO has given me a new respect for all RO's and everybody affiliated with running a match. I have also found a new and greater respect for all the Soldiers that make this the best Army in the world. In closing I had a great time and learned a lot.
Until next time Stay Army Strong!
