Over the past 91 years, the Navy had bestowed the golden Distinguished Pistol Shot Badge on only 387 sailors. Now Lt. Cmdr. Derek "Der Der" Rader has become the 388th.

“Really, the medal is a conversation piece for me to encourage both civilian and military shooters to participate in higher level competitions,” said Rader, 38, a member of the U.S. Navy Marksmanship Team. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/military/sd-me-navy-pistol-20171012-story.html
