CNGB Postal Matches wrap up; Illinois soldiers take top honors

The Chief, National Guard Bureau Postal Match Championship (CNGB) was held on 19-21 August 2013, here at the National Guard Marksmanship Training Center (NGMTC) at Camp J. T. Robinson in North Little Rock, Arkansas.

Captain Jason P. Hogue, CNGB Program Manager for NGMTC, concluded the competition was a success.

“With this year’s hurdle, between budget constraints and several competitions taking place at the same time, the service members pushed through the obstacles to get here and made their presence known immediately with their fire superiority.”

The (CNGB) Postal Match Championship is a competitive training event sponsored by the NGMTC and it promotes basic individual rifle and pistol marksmanship skills at the unit level by allowing participation by as many competitors as possible.

The CNGB Postal Matches has three phases of competition: a Postal Phase, a Marksmanship Area Council (MAC) Region Phase, and a National Championship Shoulder-to-Shoulder Phase.

Phase I – Postal Phase. The postal phase gives competitors an opportunity to test their marksmanship skills against other Soldiers and Airmen in their unit and state utilizing the Laser Marksmanship Training System. Match results must be fired and forwarded to the NGMTC. Each Soldier or Airman can compete as many times as desired, but only one result can be submitted for scoring.

Phase II – MAC Region Phase. Phase II is a paper aggregate match. NGMTC will receive all Phase I results, sort them by MAC region, and publish a results bulletin. The results bulletin determines the top four competitors per MAC.

Phase III – Shoulder-to-Shoulder Phase. This phase is a three day rifle and pistol live fire competition conducted at the NGMTC at Robinson Maneuver Training Center (RMTC), North Little Rock, Arkansas. The top 4 competitors per MAC Region in Phase II will receive automatic invitations to compete. The individual winner of Phase III is the competitor earning the highest aggregate score, and is the overall CNGB Postal Match champion.

Phase III Soldiers and Airmen are also introduced to each All Guard Team Discipline firing Service Pistol, Service Rifle and Combat Courses of Fire with instruction from All Guard Members. Both individual and team matches are conducted to support teamwork and MAC Region training. Also included is conduct of the Excellence-in-Competition Match providing an opportunity to earn leg points towards becoming distinguished in both Combat Rifle and Combat Pistol culminating in an outstanding training opportunity.

“You are among the most accurate and precise shooters we have. That alone is something to be proud of,” Col. Franklin D. Powell, NGMTC Commander, told those in attendance.

“Fire superiority is number one. Regardless of your rank, regardless of the uniform you wear… at the end of the day, it comes down to the red stripe on the American flag; which represents those Soldiers that bled in battle. With the training gained at competitions such as the CNGB, we can ensure it’s not our own blood that’s shed,” he said.
