Default Ribbons and Medals in boot camp ~

The only ribbons or medals that a recruit can get while in boot camp is the National Defense Service Medal & the Pistol Marksman.

The National Defense Service Medal is what sailors call a "geedunk" medal since you don't earn it, it is just given to you because you served honorably during a designated time period of which a "national emergency" had been declared. Everyone gets it.



The other one they you can earn while in boot camp is the Pistol Marksmanship Ribbon. There are 3 levels:

Marksman:


Sharpshooter:


Expert:


c. Summary Table – Navy Handgun Qualification Course

Yard = 3
Rounds = 12
Sequence =
Draw and fire two rounds/4 seconds
Draw and fire two rounds/4 seconds
Draw and fire two rounds, reload six rounds and fire two rounds/10 seconds
Draw and fire four rounds/8 seconds

Yard = 7
Rounds = 12
Sequence =
Draw and fire two rounds/4 seconds
Draw and fire two rounds/4 seconds
Draw and fire two rounds, reload six rounds and fire two rounds/10 seconds
Draw and fire four rounds/8 seconds

Yard = 15
Rounds = 24
Sequence =
Draw and fire two rounds/4 seconds
Draw and fire two rounds/4 seconds
Draw and fire four rounds/8 seconds
Draw and fire four rounds, reload 12 rounds and fire four rounds/20 seconds
Draw and fire eight rounds/20 seconds.

Marksmanship awards, qualification, and record entries shall be based on the following:
Possible Score = 240
Expert = 228 - 240
Sharpshooter = 204 – 227
Marksman = 180 - 203
Minimum Qualifying Score = 180
Unqualified = Less than 180

This is straight out of the OPNAV Instruction 3591.1f

Default What if you miss the Marksmanship qualification?

Hi all! My husband is currently in boot camp and I just got a letter today that said he was going to miss the live fire portion of the marksmanship qualification because he had a doctor's appointment (this would have been last Tuesday). If he misses the live fire, does he get a chance to make that up? I know he was really looking forward to earning a medal but I'm worried now he missed his chance.

Since it's not a requirement to graduate, he probably won't be able to make it up at RTC... but, depending on his rating, he should have another opportunity in A School or once he gets to the fleet.

He can volunteer TAD to security/force protection when he gets to the boat and qualify for both pistol and rifle, with a bonus OC spray to the face regardless of rate. Unless he's a GM, or MA he probably won't be able to do it in 'A' school.
