Today Camp Perry is known as the home to NRA’s National Matches, but in 1918, it had been largely converted to the most formal and lengthiest of all the sniper schools in the U.S. Along with five British sniping instructors, the camp's senior officers were all senior officials of the NRA—Olympic-level American shooters who had been members of the National Guard or otherwise commissioned officers—and were the nucleus of what would become the Small Arms Training School. By the time Americans entered combat overseas, the combination of American marksmanship and British tactical training made them formidable opponents.
