‘Chute Shooter Sherri Jo

SGT Sherri GallagherWe had to share this inspiring photograph (below) of SGT Sherri Jo Gallagher. As well as being a highly-trained Army parachutist, Sherri is one of America’s top shooters. In 2010 Sherri Jo won the NRA National High Power Championship. She was only the second lady in history to become the National High Power Champion (the first was Sherri’s mother, Nancy Tompkins).

Also in 2010, Sherri was named the U.S. Army Soldier of the Year, the first female soldier to be so honored. This award is given to the top soldier at the U.S. Army’s Annual Best Warrior competition.

SGT Gallagher is currently a proud member of the U.S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team. In that role, she gets to do fun stuff like this…

In 2010, SGT Sherri Jo Gallagher became the first U.S. military shooter since 1987 to win the Nat’l High Power Rifle Championship. She was only the second woman ever to win — the first being her mother, Nancy Tompkins.

Sherri’s family is legendary in U.S. shooting competition. She spent her childhood summers touring shooting competitions with her parents, Mid and Nancy, both competitive shooters. Sherri’s sister Michelle Gallagher is also a top-level long-range shooter, with many titles to her credit. “My family is always there for me — we are really close,” Gallagher said. “I am who I am today because of my family. We have so much fun and live life that way.”

Sherri Jo Gallagher Joins Army’s Golden Knights Parachute Team

SGT Sherri Jo Gallagher, 2010 National High Power Champion, is trading her USAMU shooting coat for a Parachute. She is now a new member of the Golden Knights U.S. Army Parachute Team. Today, Sherri posted the news on her Facebook Page: “It’s official. After 2 months and 200 jumps, eight of us were promoted from ‘try-out’ to proud members of the Golden Knights. I will always be thankful for everything the Army Marksmanship Unit has done for me and for my amazing teammates that I served with for the past 5 years. I look forward to what is to come and am humbled by the opportunity to work with another awesome team in the Golden Knights. Wooohoooo!”

Will Sherri’s aerial assignment with the Golden Knights limit Sherri’s participation in competitive shooting matches, such as the National High Power Championship at Camp Perry? We’re waiting for an answer to that question from Sherri herself. We do know that Sherri is far too talented to leave the shooting sports behind, but, in the months ahead she may be spending more time under a golden canopy than on the firing line. We congratulate Sherri on her selection as a Golden Knight. We wish her safe flights and success in her new endeavor.
