EIC points from active duty match transfer?
Hey all- I'm considering shooting some EIC matches in the future. While I was active duty I shot in an EIC match and earned my bronze USAF EIC (Elementary) badge. I know I also earned 4 points toward my silver and Distinguished, but I am now retired from the Air Force. How do I go about getting credit for the 4 points? Just send the CMP a copy of the letter that accompanied my badge? Or, are those points no longer valid?

The points are still valid. You can check on the CMP website to see if you are listed as having points. If they are not there, you can send them your documentation and they will credit you the points.

Here's the link to check:

It is great that they do that now. Back in the mid 90s they didn't.

At least for Rifle.

An older guy got his Service points in the 60s and I got mine in the 80s. We were really bolt gun shooters but decided to try for the Distinguished Rifleman badge.

After a few Leg Matches we knew we should be close to legging out. I went to the CMP office at Camp Perry with my Army orders in hand. They said sorry, they won't count them. The old guy could see them not counting his because he had no paperwork (his house had burned down a couple years before) but was baffled that they wouldn't count mine.

Anyway, we both just soldiered on and got our badges with all civilian points.

1988 and 1989 gold and silver points form the Eastern Division Marine matches...Fortunately, I had them listed on my DD214. I then took photos of the badges that had my names engraved on the back. After forwarding all of this, I received 18 points. Hope your journey goes as well.

Just got an email from the Competition Program Coordinator and she said just send a copy of the letter/orders that accompanied my badge and she'll update my points. So, looks like it will be pretty easy. Thanks again for the info!

EDIT: My 4 points are now showing, as of yesterday.
