A story with a happy ending!

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). 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 this Terrorist's mouth..was...his @ss!

Snopes says that the picture is real and the woman is identified as Senior Airman Polly-jan Bobseine, a member of 832 Security Forces Fire Team member, stationed at Moody AF Base, Georgia. Apparently the only thing real is that she is a real AF sniper, and the picture is by an official A.F. photographer. The poster and the account of the incident are not "real".

I don't give a damn, it's a good motivational poster in any case, and I salute SrA Bobseine for her service to her Country. We need many more young women (AND men) like her, willing to serve in our Armed Forces.
