Fort Campbell, KY – Blending in with his environment, avoiding detection, seeing from a distance, shooting the enemy at long range: the life of a sniper.

Select soldiers from all across Fort Campbell are spending a month training to become fully qualified snipers in a course, which began March 12th.

Staff Sgt. Craig E. Jordan, a sniper instructor from Company C, 2nd Battalion, 29th Infantry Regiment with the U.S. Army Sniper School in Fort Benning, GA, said the training is meant for sections to send their soldiers to be qualified as Bravo 4 snipers.
