CWO-3 Pietroforte

The Marine Corps Distinguished Shooters Association salutes CWO-3 Michael Pietroforte (Double-Distinguished: R-1953, P-1957).

CWO-3 Pietroforte was a founding Board Member of the MCDSA at its inception in 1977, and he recently passed away on 22 January 2022.  As a Technical Sergeant in 1958 he was the first to ever fire a possible in the National Trophy Individual Rifle Match. He was a highly respected member of the MCDSA Community — he will be greatly missed by many.
