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

    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'

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