A story with a happy ending! The ex-cheerleader (age 19) and now an Air Force Security Forces Sniper in this picture was watching a road that led to a NATO military base when she observed a man digging by the road. She engaged the target, and 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 struck him in the behind, blowing into the bomb, which detonated. He was blown to pieces.The Air Force made a motivational poster of her.
(Folks, that's a shot taken 25 yards longer than seven football fields!!)
I WOULD SAY THAT SHE IS A CRACK SHOT (No Pun Intended)
