    Some of you might appreciate a 725 yard shot, I know I do!



    The ex-cheerleader (age 19) in the picture below 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 U.S. 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 butt blowing him into the bomb which detonated. He was blown to pieces.

    The Marine Corp. made a motivational poster of her. Her name is Kimmy. To you, Kimmy, we say, OoooRah! Thanks for your service.


    This is added on July 20th..... this was sent to me by a friend. I didn't check it out, I knew some one would though. :<) It still sounds good!! OH well.

    She's not a Marine; she's an Air Force Senior Airman, Security Forces type.

    Like the story, motive, dedication and the image, but, they have incorrectly spelled "environment" on the advertisement. I know, spelling Police, but,......

    Hi there,

    I'm the girl the photo. This picture was taken as we were training; I'm not wearing lip gloss, have never been a cheerleader, and the only accurate information is what is in my bio from the AF source.

    Hope this clears up some of the confusion!

    It's a bogus story. Check out snopes.
