Reserve defenders excel in international shooting competition —
Four defenders from the Air Force Reserve Command represented the command well at the annual Danish Army International Shooting Competition at Halk Range, Hadersley, Denmark in June.
AFRC Team Master Sgt. James Miller, 926e Security Forces Squadron, Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., Tech. sergeant. Caleb Giddings, 934e SFS, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Air Reserve Station, Minnesota, Tech. sergeant. Nikolas Infanta, 482n/a SFS, Homestead Air Reserve Base, Florida and Tech. sergeant. Seth Guyer, 439e SFS, Westover ARB, Mass., won first place in the Viking Stage event and third place in the team competition.
Additionally, Giddings placed second in the Best Individual Shooter category, and Guyer received the Danish Marksmanship Badge and placed fifth overall in the Best Individual Shooter category.
“I couldn’t be more proud of our defenders,” said Chief Master Sgt. Barry Haukoos, head of the AFRC’s security forces branch. “Once again, our Citizen Airmen represented the best of our career. They relied on relationships with our allies and partners in that part of the world.
Reserve Airmen were the only US military personnel participating in the event.
“These four members were chosen through a selection process,” Haukoos said. “These members are the best marksmen in the command, and all are traditional reservists.”
