A Story with a Happy Ending

sniper1

This nineteen-year-old ex-cheerleader (now an Air Force Security Forces Sniper) was watching a road that led to a NATO military base when she observed a man digging by the road. She engaged the target (i.e., she shot him). Turned out he was a bomb maker for the Taliban and he was burying an IED that was to be detonated when a US patrol walked by 30 minutes later. It would have certainly killed and wounded several soldiers.

The interesting fact of this story is the shot was measured at 725 yards. She shot him as he was bent over burying the bomb. The shot went through his butt and into the bomb which detonated; he was blown to pieces

Sweet!! I think I’ll have my wife run our “Homeland Secrurity”!!

    Sam!!! Where have you been? You did not reply to my last email (it’s been a few weeks). I popped in here from my sitemeter, which said you (or someone) visited my blog from here.

    I haven’t had a chance to read yet, as I just wanted to hurry up and leave a comment.

    Hope all is well…

    Gayla!! [[is rather shocked]]

    I’ve been really lax in checking my e-mails, my apologies. All is well. The Meza family is busily going on neighborhood “reconnaissance” missions to procure our first home. How is all with you and yours?
