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 US 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 Air Force made a motivational poster of her. Her name is Kimmy. To you, Kimmy, we say, HOO-AH! Thanks for your service. :-)

Why does the Air Force get all the former Cheerleaders and not the Marines?

I need to get in contact with the person that started this e-mail or maybe even Kimmy herself. As a Army Sniper (retired) I now run a non-profit org. named SaluteASoldier.org and I would really like to have her on the the team as either a spokesperson or maybe on work P.R. for us. If there is any way to contact either of these people, please help me out doing so.

Thank you for your time,
SSgt. Brent Bretz U.S. Army Sniper (retired)
President of SaluteASoldier.org
