Damn! A chance to meet Carlos Hatchcock's CO is nice. I wish this was at Parris Island. But PA is too far.

Father of the modern Marine sniper program? I think not. Land established his sniper school in HI in 1961. There was no combat in Hawaii in 1961 so his snipers only completed a sniping course and never sniped in the field unless they later went to Vietnam. Captain Robert Russell established the first full circle sniper school in 1965 while in Vietnam and those 12 snipers actually got to snipe in the field. Lands program in Vietnam did not begin until 1966. I would consider Land the "Step-Daddy" of sniping and Bob Russell the Father..just sayin'

"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks." -Thomas Jefferson

It's not the pie I'd be worried about. That roast beef might make you sick though.
