The Maneuver Center of Excellence’s, 198th Infantry Brigade, Fort Benning, Ga., hosted a marksmanship competition on the installation recently. The first of its’ kind; this two-day competition, included movement on the ranges and an opportunity for the soldier to think about more than just zeroing in on a target to shoot. In a lot of ways the competition was about getting back to the basics.
