"In March 2004, a group of US police snipers decided to form a support network to address the needs of US military snipers deployed abroad in the war on terror. The mission profile of police and military snipers have been found to overlap in the war on terror and the gear and supplies needed to accomplish the
missions are very similar. However, due to the enormity of the US commitment in Iraq and Afghanistan, often times these servicemen go without things they need. Being aware of this and using contacts developed throughout the US police and military communities, the police snipers were able to network with military snipers deployed abroad, obtain their overseas addresses and began sending desperately needed gear and supplies that are specifically tailored to the sniper mission, currently at the forefront of the war on terror. The entire program is funded by civic donations. Every penny donated will go to a United States military sniper deployed abroad. Anyone wishing to assist the program are encouraged to send monetary donations towww.adoptasniper.org. Working American police officers staff the site and an email or hard copy receipt will be issued for all donations. Gear and supply donations are requested to
be sent to the police detective below. For further information, please contact Detective Brian K. Sain of the Port Arthur, Texas Police Department at one of the following:
409-983-8663 police dispatch
409-983-8613 chief's office
