Six Fort Benning Soldiers earned spots on Team USA’s World Championship Rifle Team after competing in USA Shooting Selection Matches over the past few months. The upcoming International Shooting Sports Federation Rifle and Pistol World Championships is October 12 – 25 in Cairo, Egypt, and the World Shooting Para Sport World Championships is November 4 -11 in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates.

The six Soldiers competing, along with their civilian teammates, are all marksmanship instructors/competitive shooters for the US Army Marksmanship Unit’s International Rifle Team, which is stationed at Fort Benning, Georgia. 

This will be the first World Championship for Sgt. Ivan Roe, a Bozeman, Montana native, and he admits to being pretty excited about the opportunity to compete on a world level. 

“My training has been getting better the last few months, and I’m looking forward to taking what I’ve been working on and putting it into action.”
