The old site is now archived at www.snipershide.info, but it isn't real user friendly, or fast.

It'll be somewhere in there.
Freedom is something you take.
Respect is something you earn.
Equality is something you whine about not being given.

What a sniper does also depends on the mission. If it's a war time mission shooting would more than likely be on the agenda. But a peace time mission probably not. I held down my units sniper slot for almost two years. So me being the "sniper" every time our unit did any training my role was  exclusively that of recon and or forward observer.

In Honduras during my time holding down the slot I worked in a two man team doing nothing but recon work. That is where I broke my ankle (the first time) six weeks before I was to go to sniper school.  I went to France and trained with the French Commandos working with their weapons systems.  That was the second time I broke my ankle, again just a few months before my next open slot in sniper school. After that I was done in my leg unit. They moved me to the BRM ranges as an instructor.
