The USAMU is seeking to hire select Army Wounded Warriors to showcase the Army as Paralympians and exhibit the notion of “Army Strong.”  Positions are limited and the ability to completely master the training will be required.  The USAMU Paralympic international rifle or international pistol competitor positions will require a strong desire to represent the United States in international shooting competitions and 5-6 hour days on the range in a competitive marksmanship environment, to include many weekends. Showcasing the Army as a Paralympian also requires an ability to maintain intense concentration for long periods of time, and high levels of self-discipline, self-motivation, and initiative.  Soldiers will interact with a diverse body of international competitors, both military and civilian.  They must also be able to perform basic computer skills and possess the capability to plan, resource, and execute multiple days of travel as a team member, both CONUS and OCONUS.

Additionally, as a member of the USAMU and an Army Ambassador, you must be willing to interact with the American public, share you own unique Army story, and inform America's youth of the options, opportunities, education, and leadership benefits available through service in the US Army.

If you would like to be a part of the unique history of the “Home of Champions,” play a vital role in raising the Army’s combat readiness, and showcase the Army as an Army Ambassador, the US Army Marksmanship Unit may be the right place for you.
