Biography

Ollie Schriver was a gunnery sergeant in the marines in 1920. In 1905 he became the first marine to earn the distinguished marksman badge. He competed for several marine teams that won NRA championships and competed internationally for the U.S. in 1912 and 1913 at the Pan-American matches, as well as at the 1920 Olympics. At the 1924 DeWar Cup Match vs. Great Britain, Schriver led the U.S. to victory as the high man on the squad. Schriver was a career Marine Corpsman and served as his company’s trumpeteer as well as coaching the Corps’ shooters in the late 20s. He retired from the Marine Corps in May 1929, and took up a position as the official scorer for the National Rifle Association.
