Speaking of snipers, some interesting facts about the silent warriors:
• Snipers are trained to shoot between heartbeats
• While Chris Kyle was the most prolific American sniper in history, a Finnish soldier named Simo Häyhä had 705 kills during the Russo-Finnish War of 1939-1940; he accomplished the feat in less than 100 days operating in temperatures as cold as -40 degrees
• The name 'sniper' derives from the 1770s, where "soldiers in British India coined the verb 'to snipe,' meaning a soldier was good enough of a shooter to kill an elusive bird called a Snipe"
God Bless Our Warriors.
