The   Photo Of The Day can be chosen for a variety of reasons. It may be because of its aesthetic qualities, its newsworthiness, its emotional impact, or its technical excellence. These ones were chosen due to the rather odd (but functional) shooting clothes and style required for these competitions. Above you see Navy Chief Machinist Mate (Nuclear) Robert Hughes, a member of the US Navy Marksmanship Team (USNMT) participating in the All Navy (East) rifle match at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, May. 10, 2024. The riflescope is from Athlon.

The USNMT is the leading proponent of small arms marksmanship and safety training for U.S. Navy personnel. Each year, the Team conducts the Fleet Forces Command (LANT) Rifle and Pistol Matches and Fleet Forces Command (PAC) Rifle and Pistol Matches, in which hundreds of sailors are trained in service rifle and service pistol marksmanship, small arms safety, and marksmanship competition rules and procedures.
