Recognition of Scout Sniper Instructors, Scout Snipers, and Corporate Sponsors at SHOT Show
In late 2013, we instituted a new awards program to formally recognize the incredible leadership and capabilities of our Scout Sniper Instructors who develop our young Marines into the best snipers in the world. We work with the Staff Non-Commissioned Officers of each schoolhouse to select the Scout Sniper Instructor of the Year. In 2014, we also added the Scout Sniper of the Year Award to a Scout Sniper selected from the Fleet Marine Force.
At SHOT Show in January 2015, we recognized Sergeant Woddle from Quantico and Staff Sergeant Lopez as the recipients of these prestigious awards. They both received a rifle from LaRue Tactical engraved with “Scout Sniper Instructor of the Year” and “Scout Sniper of the Year”. Additionally, we provide a Scout Sniper Stein to each Instructor at each schoolhouse that successfully completes a tour at one of the schoolhouses, to demonstrate our appreciation for their devotion and hard efforts.
Finally, we are continuing our efforts to recognize the outstanding Corporate Support for the Marine Corps Scout Sniper Association. Corporate sponsors are an instrumental part of the Scout Sniper Association and have contributed greatly to the success of our organization.
