Issue Regulations: Sharpshooter Badge/Medal/Ribbon

Military Sharpshooters are designated as per their qualifying test scores  during initial
training or annual/period requirements. (Test scores vary  between testing centers and may
change over time.) Sharpshooters are  positioned between
Marksmen (below) and Experts (above). The three  categories of rifle qualifiers (Marksmen,
Sharpshooters and Experts) were  created to position riflemen in semi-fixed positions on a
battlefield.  Markmen are placed on the battlefield to
engage enemy forces at close or  point-blank range. Sharpshooters are placed to engage at
medium range.  Experts are placed to engage enemy forces are long distance ranges. The 
Army and Marine Corps awards a badge. The Navy Awards a medal
(Expert) and  Ribbon (Sharpshooters and Marksman)
