t the turn of the twentieth century, approximately 5,500 enlisted Marines were on expeditionary duty throughout the Pacific, and were not able to compete in state rifle championships in the United States. By 1901, the international scene had stabilized and allowed the Corps to create a team from units along the East Coast and compete in the State Rifle Association Matches at Sea Girt, New Jersey.
Lead by Major Charles D. Lauchheimer, the newly appointed Inspector of Target Practice, the team of mostly experienced shooters learned how quickly behind the curve they were as they observed other state teams who had already been competing for years. Lessons learned and outstanding contributions from shooters and coaches over the years such as Lieutenants Thomas Holcomb and Douglas C. McDougal, First Sergeant V. H. Czegka, and Sergeant Oliver M. Scriver lead the Corps to their first National victory in 1911.
For over a century, this devoted competitive spirit and purpose for maintaining a highly trained team to both instruct and compete worldwide has continued to pay dividends. The Corps benefits from the Competition-In-Arms Program (CIAP) by learning additional coaching techniques, is provided expanded recruiting opportunities, and ultimately improves Marines’ qualification scores across the board resulting in a better trained force in readiness.
