    Something that came through my office email today. She will make someone a fine wife . . . .
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    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. The Air Force made a motivational poster of her.

    Folks, that's a shot 25 yards longer than seven football fields!) And the last thing that came out of his mouth..was his ***!!!

    I finally got around to reading her bio. Quite impressive. A few more like her and those poor folks won't know what hit them. I don't think we had her type when I was in the Air Force. Amazing job . . . .

    My point exactly.
    She doesn't need the fluff she got tagged with.

    Her credits speak for themselves.:cool:
     
  11. Indeed they do, Bob. She is a credit to the uniform she wears, and I would have no doubt she would employ that rifle in line of duty were it required of her.

    Why does she have on Pearl Earrings when in Fatigues? Is there no regulations against it in the AF?
