One Shot, One Kill
The shot was the longest confirmed kill in the Iraq war. Snipers are a little-known tool in the US war effort, largely due to the fact that stealth is their modus operandi. They do not operate in such a way as to generate photos or exciting video.
This particular sniper, Staff Sgt Jim Gilliland, has between 55 and 65 confirmed kills. And that in a period of only five months. He might soon reach the record by a Marine sniper, 93 confirmed kills held by the late Carlos Hathcock. You can read Hathcock's Washington Post obituary here.
Aim true and be safe, men.
