The 1922 Rifle and Pistol Team
"A match is never won until the last marine has fired his last shot."
SUCH were the words of Lieutenant Colonel Morton C. Mumma, U. S. Army, Executive Officer of the National Matches, upon the conclusion of the last stage of the National Rifle Match, and such is the reputation of the Marine Corps among the shooting fraternity of the world.
It is a beautiful tribute to our consummate skill, spirit and clean sportsmanship, and a slogan that should be cherished by all marines and handed down as a precious tradition to those destined to follow us.
