My kinda girlie....

Long Distance Engagement...

This 19 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). It 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 bum! Allah Akbar!
