Military Marksmanship Association names its Soldier of the Year

Posted: Updated:
Staff Sergeant Brandon Green has been named the Military Marksmanship Association's 013 Soldier of the Year. The award was presented during the association's annual meeting Feb. 7 at the Pool International Shooting Complex.

"I'm very proud to be a member of this unit ... and proud to be the Soldier of the Year," said Green, a member of the Service Rifle Section. "I really appreciate this opportunity ... to train and work here."

Green is a native of Covington, Louisiana. He also won the National Rifle Association's 2013 National Highpower Rifle Championships at Camp Perry, Ohio. It was his first national championship after several second and third place finishes throughout his career. Winning there is considered winning against the best in the country.


Green won the 2013 Interservice Individual Championship for the fourth time and was a member of the team that swept all team matches on their way to the overall team title. Green and his team shattered records and gained victories in team matches at Camp Perry and during the Interservice Team Championships.

The MMA 2013 Soldier of the Year nominees were: Staff Sgt. Patrick Franks, Cross Functional Team-Pistol; Staff Sgt. Daniel Horner, Action Shooting Section; Staff Sgt. Michael McPhail, International Rifle Section; Spc. Reuben Anderson, Custom Firearm Shop; Staff Sgt. Glenn Eller, Shotgun Team member; Sgt. John Joss, Paralympics Team member, and Sgt. Curtis Yetman, Instructor Training Group.
