Established in 1991, the Armed Forces Skills at Arms Meeting (AFSAM) is a multinational and
interservice competition that was created to promote marksmanship training and competition between the different components and services of United States military forces and allied nations. The event is run during the same time frame as the Winston P. Wilson Championship and incorporates many of the same courses of fire.
The international marksmanship exchange program offers shooters from the U. S. and allied nations an opportunity to test marksmanship skills and weapons systems in battle-focused or
operationalized training events. This meeting affords opportunities for cross training on the host nation’s weapons, systems, techniques, tactics, and procedures.
