“I wanted this since I was a child, since I was a kid running around in the backyard, playing army. This is what I want to do with my life”.

“Sniper School is the only thing that I knew about the army, before I joined. I asked for the school, shot 40 out of 40 and 1 out of 3 in the Company and asked for the spot and got it”.

“You can’t stamp out a sniper, you can’t just make a sniper it is a different breed of person. Most of us here believe we are that breed, and I guess in 7 weeks we will find out if we are”.


“Sniper School is an introductory course to develop soldiers to take positions as snipers. Basically our job is to train them in specific sets of skills so for instance, target detection, range determination, stalking, marksmanship and various weapon platforms that we use".

"So a Regular Unit Battalion is going to gain a whole lot from having a sniper and utilizing them properly. Most of the time we are utilized to gather that necessary, key vital information that out commander needs in order to drive there planning for a raid or for whatever the mission is, that they are trying to come up with".

"You come here to get certified as a sniper, so I came here and learned meticulously on everything I have been taught back in my unit. I went over it and learned the ins and outs, and why it is done the way it’s done".

SGT DALE TAYLOR (Sniper School Student)

“I come up with a bunch of the guys, that we started class with. These dudes, who have been in sections for the last 2 - 3 years just banging out in there section and they’re gone and I’m not, it’s pretty awesome".

“Don’t Come unless you are ready, because obviously a lot of soldiers did that, they sent 46 and only 4 graduated. If you don’t think you are going to make it you should just go home now. That’s the mindset you got to have. If you think you are going to fail then you have already failed".
