A sniper is a highly trained marksman who operates alone, in a pair, or with a sniper team to maintain close visual contact with the enemy and engage targets from concealed positions or distances exceeding the detection capabilities of enemy personnel. These sniper teams operate independently, with little combat asset support from their parent units. Snipers typically have highly selective and specialized training and use high-precision/special application rifles and optics, and often have sophisticated communication assets to feed valuable combat information back to their units. In addition to marksmanship, military snipers are trained in camouflage, field craft, infiltration, special reconnaissance and observation, surveillance and target acquisition. Snipers are especially effective when deployed within the terrain of urban warfare, or jungle warfare.

Chris Kyle was the Primary Sniper, Navigator, Pointman, and newguys kind of get matched up to a person. He was the person I got matched up to, because I would eventually be groomed to take on his responsibilities, so early on, I got tasked with being the Assistant Lead Navigator and Point Man and Sniper, which I eventually got to take on these roles more as a Primary later, and in workup and also on deployment.
We have a sniper here that has killed 600 people and is on track to kill another thousand before this year is up -- and we don't fear it ? I guarantee you if it was a sniper with a rifle, there wouldn't be one parent letting their child out.

I had a chance to see 'American Sniper' this week on that long flight we took.
The mark of a good piece of art is when people can have different interpretations, so I think it's entirely possible that people on the right and the left will both vote for it. The popularity of 'American Sniper' is an indication that a lot of people like it, and that includes red states, blue states and Oscar voters. If anything, I think people in Hollywood are encouraged -- after the box office dropped in 2014 -- that a January movie can make this money.
