PA Soldiers, Airmen Compete in Governor’s Twenty

Seventy PA National Guard soldiers and airmen recently competed with rifles and pistols in multiple courses of fire to determine the best marksmen during the Governor’s Twenty match at Fort Indiantown Gap.  Created in 1968, the Governor’s Twenty is a state-level National Guard award presented annually to the top 20 shooters in a state.  Through this fierce competition, participants have the opportunity to test marksmanship skills and weapon systems in a battle focused environment.  The Army and Air Force both recognize the state award and it is reflected on the service members’ official personnel record.

Senior Airman Nicholas Yackovich, of Harrison City, Westmoreland County, took first place.  Congratulations to the following 2019 Governor’s Twenty recipients who are constituents of the 48th Senatorial District!  Well done and thank you for your service!
