LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (August 9, 2010) — Two Soldiers from the 103rd Brigade Support Battalion stepped up to the targets to compete in the Bluegrass State Games’ high-powered service rifle competition July 18.  

 The competition, sponsored by the National Rifle Association (NRA), took place at the Anderson County Sportsman Club in Lawrenceburg and featured shooters from across the state.  Coming in first place was Sgt. Brian Roution, while Sgt. Daniel McSpadden placed fourth in the shootout. 

 After their victory, the Soldiers brought their skills back to the unit by teaching a close quarters marksmanship course.  The course, which is held at Wendell H. Ford Regional Training Center in Greenville Ky., taught Soldiers from the Headquarters Company of the 103rd  BSB, A. Co., B . Co., 203rd Forward Support Company, and Headquarters Battalion over the course of  2 days.  

The course emphasized helping Soldiers to develop their close-range firing skills in addition to the normally trained distance-firing. On his victory at the Bluegrass State Games, Roution said “it’s great to be in an organization that recognizes the talents of its members and allows them pursue those talents.”
