The Steele Challenge, Aug. 9-10, 2012, was the capstone event of Cadet Basic Training for the Class of 2016 as they prepare to enter the Corps of Cadets. At the marksmanship site, new cadets were required to shoot targets at ranges between 50 to 200 meters in three positions: standing, kneeling supported and kneeling unsupported. They had one minute to engage targets in each of these positions before moving to another station where they were required to disassemble and assemble the M249 and M240B weapons.
