I just wanted to thank you personally for all the great work you have compiled and made so easy to study. I am currently a Sniper in Iraq with the Big Red One out of Ft. Riley and the RTO/Security guy in my team has your book, The Ultimate Sniper
. I went to Sniper School in 2007 and was in my battalions sniper Section a few months before I went. I've been a shooter for my team ever since. I appreciate the book and as a section we review it often and even give 'Sniper tips of the day' from it.
Thank you so much and God bless,
SPC. Andrew Wiscombe"
