Army holds Marksmanship Assessment and Evaluation

CAPAS, Tarlac — Philippine Army conducted a Marksmanship Assessment and Evaluation (PMAE) in time for this year’s ASEAN Armies Rifle Meet (AARM). 

“PMAE serves as an avenue and platform in selecting the next best shooters of the Army and to compete locally and internationally particularly in the AARM and to augment as instructors of the Marksmanship Training School,” Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Commander Major General Roy Devesa said.

“For this year, there were 73 participants from the Philippine Army Major Units wherein 33 represented Luzon, 15 for Visayas and 25 represented Mindanao,” he added.

The shooters competed in various categories including pistol match for men and women, rifle event, carbine match and machine gun match.

All contingents underwent series of matches in accordance with the regulations set by the AARM.

“The success of this event has paved a very effective way in assessing and evaluating the Army’s marksmanship capability. The procedures were highly challenging which enhanced the skills and competence of our potential shooters,” Devesa stressed.

“TRADOC, being the primary unit responsible for the Marksmanship Training of the Philippine Army will continuously improve its training program through the conduct of assessment and evaluation towards the empowerment of our troops,” he furthered.
