UPDATE: I forgot to hyperlink to the story 😉 There goes my Pulitzer.  You can find the story here.

USAToday published a very interesting and enlightening piece on how US Snipers are being used with great effect in Iraq and Afghanistan.  While I think their assertion that snipers are “changing warfare” is a bit of a stretch, I do agree that the use of snipers is, and always has been, very effective.  I am somewhat disappointed that they didn’t talk about how smart, handsome, dashing, incredibly brave, selfless, and (did I say handsome already?) Marine Scout/Snipers are. (yes…I was a USMC SS but I am NOT biased ;).  The story does give some insight into the training and how snipers are used in warfare.  Overall, a very good read on the subject.
