, Communicate, Survive and Adapt. Mostevery Soldier can recite these words. They understandthe foundation of Soldiering best demonstrated in ourWarrior Task and Battle Drills. Above all, it’s what we dothat makes us who we are; Soldiers. The ability to Shootis a defining characteristic of a Soldier. We wear it withpride on our uniforms and compete with enthusiasm for abetter score each time we shoot. Shooting is Soldiering;it is what we do. So, a competitive exercise such as Ari-zona’s All Weapons Weekend is more than marksman-ship synergy at its best. It is an opportunity to Soldier,shoulder to shoulder, and to learn from the best how to bethe best.Maintain, employ, and engage with an assigned weaponsystem is a collection of supporting tasks to the warriortask - shoot. The All weapons weekend will test, proveand hone those very shooting skills. Beyond this, Sol-diers who take the challenge and compete will walk awaymore confident and resilient. Their skill and ability toadapt will increase. This shooting event will build strong-er, better Soldiers in dimensions far beyond the tech-niques of maintenance, trigger squeeze, and breath con-trol. From strengthening the bonds of the battle buddysystem to adapting, listening and learning; this exercisewill test and forge new strength in many critical dimen-sions of our warrior task proficiency.
The ultimate achievement for a soldier is to earn Distinguished designation in shooting.
The Distinguished Rifleman and Distinguished Pistol Shot Badges are awarded to mem-bers of the Armed Forces, or civilians, in recognition of “a preeminent degree ofachievement in target practice with the service rifle or pistol.”The top 10 percent of shooters in the Excellence in Competition Matches (Rifle and Pis-tol) will receive official points towards their Distinguished designation. Many shooterstake years to reach a distinguished level. But to be double-distinguished is a rare ac-complishment. “there are fewer double distinguished shooters than there are Medals ofHonor”
Other prestigious awards are:
President’s 100– Top 100 at Camp Perry, Ohio
Chief’s 50– Top 50 shooters in the National Guard. Winston P. Wilson NationalCompetition, Little Rock, Arkansas.
Governor’s Dozen– Top 12 shooters at All Weapons Weekend, Florence, AZ .

The top 12 shooters in the Arizona State Match (AWW 2011) will be awarded Governor’s Dozen.This is a highly honored award signed by the Governor and the TAG Authorizing the Governor'sDozen” patch to be worn on the uniform in this state.The Governor's Dozen Award has been around in Arizona for over 12 years and is authorized inaccordance with STARC AZ PAM 672. Every year at the State Competition (All weapons Week-end) the individual competition scores are added up and published. Some questions have beenasked about whether or not the same 12 people can win that award again and again.1) In Accordance with the National Guard Marksmanship Training Unit, out of LittleRock, Arkansas. We will follow suite much like the “Chief’s 50” and The “President’sHundred”. In which, there is no limit to the amount of times a person can win thataward.2)
You have to earn it.
If you want it, then practice and take it. One thing is for certainwith almost every Governor’s Dozen recipient; They practice. They practice onweekends, they practice on weekdays, they practice like professional athletes be-cause they plan on winning. They memorize the match program and they have theinitiative to run their own drills and practice even when they do not have bullets. Ifwe only gave it to “NEW” recipients then eventually everyone in the AZ NationalGuard would have one. It is designed to be an award for excellence. Not an awardfor attendance.3) Most Governor’s Dozen recipients will tell you that winning is 50 percent marksman-ship, and 50 percent mental.Recipients of the Governor’s Dozen are expected to attend the Regional Match in California andthe National Match in Arkansas. Governor’s Dozen are also expected to be the MarksmanshipCoordinators and trainers for their units.
