An airman from St. Joseph ranks in a national competition for shooting.

Sergeant Benjamin Israel of the 139th airlift wing took 3rd place overall champion as a novice and 7th overall competing among 330 shooters. Israel also serves our region as a highway patrolman, but says time on the shooting range is just an annual event, and he practices occasionally at home. This year's US small arms championships competition was held at Fort Benning Georgia.
