The Feminine Side of the Marines

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 U.S. 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 Marines made a motivational poster of her.

Her name is Kimmy.
