The U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, in conjunction with Maneuver Center of Excellence, will host the 2014 U.S. Army Small Arms Championships, from Jan. 26 to Feb. 1, at Fort Benning, Ga.

The All-Army competition is open to all Soldiers, active and reserve component, of all ranks. Additionally, both West Point and Reserve Officer Training Corps cadets are welcome to participate.

The U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit, or USAMU, hosts the All-Army in order to raise the standard of marksmanship across the force and increase overall Army combat readiness.

Range capacity for the event is 240, and half of those have already been claimed through early registration. Once registration exceeds that number, Soldiers will be placed on a stand-by list for the competition.

There is no cost to compete in the championship and ammunition is provided to all competitors.

For additional information and to register, visit the USAMU website at or contact the USAMU chief of competitions, at 706-545-7841.
