Earning the AMU black hat in 87 was one of my high points.

LOL... then failing to get the President's 100 tab two months later by 4 points when I ran out of time at the 200 yard offhand stage with a round still in the chamber sorta took some of the starch out of my collar.

But then a week later I managed to earn the Army Distinguished Rifleman Badge, which made up for it a bit.

I'm happy to see that the Marksmanship Unit does stuff like this, and what they did for that Veteran was remarkable.
