Right up your alley

The Real Miss Canada

This 19 year old ex-cheerleader (now an Air Force Security Forces Sniper) was watching a road that led to a NATO military base when she observed a man digging by the road. She engaged the target (I.e. , she shot him). It turned out he was a bomb maker for the Taliban , and he was burying an IED that was to be detonated when a Canadian 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 went through his butt and into the bomb which detonated; he was blown to pieces. The Air Force made a motivational poster of her:

Thanks Ivan......... the photo is real... the poster is not.... nor is she Canadian... nor did she save a Canadian patrol ... there is no evidence that she was a cheerleader... she is however, in the US Air Force Security Forces and an accomplished marksperson... she was a New York Junior shotgun champion... she was home schooled which begs the question... what team are you a cheerleader for???...... where do you go for high school reunions????
