The Longest Shots
Impressive 950-yard bulls-eyes.
"The battalion officer ordered me to 'make the mortars stop. I took it personally and went out specifically to stop the insurgents."
Two more insurgents still alive and ready to continue the mortar attack, Sandoval readied for the shot at the assistant gunner. The last two shots took out the driver of the vehicle that carried the weapon.
"When I finally spotted them along a tree line, I realized how far they were but it was surprising how easy it was"
Those four shots were the longest in Sandoval has taken since he became a scout sniper.
