OKLAHOMA SOLDIERS MAKE GOOD SCORES

Fort Sill Shots Hold Their Own In Competition at Fort Sheridan

Aug. 29, 1906 – Lt. Hensley, Jr., of the Thirteenth cavalry, stationed at Fort Sill, was selected as a member of the Southwestern division team to take part in the rifle and pistol competitions at Fort Sheridan, being one of the high men in the list of thirteen. Corporal Neville, of the Twenty-sixth infantry, who made such fine scores at Fort Sill, was also in this list of good shots at Sheridan. On the second day of the shooting Sgt. Elder of Fort Sill was among the high marksmen. Second in the list was Sgt. Willis of the Twenty-sixth infantry and following him was Lt. Point, of the Twenty-ninth infantry, both of whom made high scores at Fort Sill.

The world’s record for slow firing is held by Sgt. Puckett. Lt. Palmer, of the Tenth cavalry, came within eight points of this record at Sheridan on the second day (Daily Oklahoman).
