BOARD MEMBERS Brett Tecklenburg


position: U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit Representative Years served: 0


Notable: LTC Tecklenburg has 23 years of Army service, principally in Infantry, but also in Special Operations. Assignments including six deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq (deployed to each loca- tion three times).


Greatest Olympic moment: My greatest Olympic moment lies ahead. The U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit has earned 25 Olympic Medals and produced 71 Olympians in our 59 year history. The soldiers that I have the honor of leading are going to add to these accom- plishments in 2016 for the U.S. Army and for our great nation. I am humbled by their talents and the small part I have in their future success.


Why I serve: As the steward and commander of an incredible orga- nization (USAMU) and some phenomenal athletes, it is my respon- sibility to do all that I can to set the conditions so that our athletes can achieve their full potential.

position: Coach/Volunteer years served: 5


Mary Weeks


position: Athletes Advisory Council (AAC) Representative Years served: 2


Notable: Multiple-time National Team member, competed in vari- ous international matches to include World Shooting Champion- ships, Pan American Games, CISM...Husband Mark Weeks is a skeet shooter at the USAMU…First team All-American in smallbore and air rifl e all four years while attending the University of Ken- tucky. Started shooting with the Langley Junior Rifl e Club in Hamp- ton, Virginia.


Why I serve: I retired from competitive shooting and went immedi- ately to law school. I missed having a connection with the sport and with the Olympic movement and thought running for AAC rep- resentative would be a good opportunity to become more involved and give back to the sport.


Dennis Willing


position: National Rifl e Association (NRA) Representative years served: 3


Notable: Member of the USA Shooting Hall of Fame as a four-time Olympian and three-time Olympic medalist including gold and silver in 1964 and gold again in 1972…Only USA Shooting Team member inducted into the U.S. Olympic Committee Hall of Fame. He previously served on the Board from 2005-08.


Greatest Olympic moment: Winning the gold at Munich in 1972 for several reasons. Number one was it proved that winning gold in 1964 was not a fl uke. It legitimized that performance in my mind... Even though I would have liked to shoot smallbore, gold in 300 meter is just as good. I won over a Soviet shooter on a tie-breaker in the last 10 shots kneeling. This also gave me an Olympic medal in all three Olympic rifl e events at the time.


Why I serve: Shooting has been my whole life and now I’m a full- time volunteer for USA Shooting.

Why I serve: As Director of Competitions for NRA, it is a natural alliance that our organizations work together in promoting the shooting sports. Seeing our young shooters develop into the ath- lete pool that leads to success in international competition gives me great pride.
