19 year old Female sniper

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)'With a M-24 Sniper rifle at 725 yards. 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:

that's a shot 25 yards longer than seven football fields! And the last thing that came out of his mouth
..was..his ass!
Allah Akbar

When she has her twenty in, she will be young enough for a second career, but I wouldn't suggest it to her unless you're outside of direct fire range. :D

Cheerleaders have always had guns. It's the band you need to worry about in terms of firearms.

I guess that when she says, "I shot his ass" it means a bit more than when others say it.
