Rifle Expert, 2nd Award badge regulations?
Hey everyone. I have qualed with the rifle three times since I've been in, and two of those times were expert. But they were not two consecutive years in a row (shot marksman my second year, for whatever reason). Do my expert scores have to be back-to-back in order to rate the "2nd Award" rung on my expert badge? I can't seem to find an MCO or Maradmin number on this anywhere... I've even tried looking in the uniform regulations order, but it doesn't say anywhere within it.

No it is not consecutive but you must wear your most current. In your case it would be a expert badge with a second award bar. Shoot Marksman next year and you would have to wear a marksman badge until you qualify again. It doesn't zero out your previous quals though.

I thought it did have to be consecutive. I will have to research this.

Everything I have found has said nothing of it having to be consecutive.

Same thing happened with me. Marksman, Expert, Sharpshooter and Expert again. I/you rate the '2nd award' bar. So rock it!

Does not need to be consecutive. It's simply saying how many times you have shot expert!

I was always told it did not have to be consecutive.

Waste your time looking up all the MCO's and all the other orders you can find. But I'll tell you again, especially after I worked on a range qualifying Marines for 4 years that it DOES NOT have to be consecutive. You rate how many times you shot it. But keep in mind that you also only rate to wear what you earned last.
Plain and simple, end of story.
