P6 Sends – Congratulations to Sgt. Scanlon and Sgt. Shealy

Panther Paratroopers, Families and Friends,

CSM Teakell and I are extremely proud of Sgt. Clinton Scanlon and Sgt. William Shealy, both of 1st Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, and commend them on their team performance during the Intentional Sniper Competition held this week on Fort Benning, Georgia.  They truly demonstrated the readiness, competency, and lethality of the Panther Paratrooper.


SGT Scanlon and SGT Shealy represented the entire 82nd Airborne Division at the grueling, multi-day competition testing every facet of their endurance, skill, and proficiency as precision marksmen.  They performed well against many of the top sniper teams from the US and our partner nations, finishing 4th out of 32 teams.
When you see them, congratulate these outstanding 1P Paratroopers on a job well done.

H-Minus!
