It was a good story and the funny thing was the sniper rifle was almost taller then she is. Very good story about the little lady.

A story with a happy ending!
This nineteen-year-old ex-cheerleader (now an Air Force Security Forces Sniper) was
watching a road that led to a NATO military base when she observed a man digging by
the road. She engaged the target (i.e., she shot him). Turned out he was a bomb maker
for the Taliban and he was burying an IED that was to be detonated when a US patrol
walked by 30 minutes later. It would have certainly killed and wounded several soldiers.

The interesting fact of this story is the shot was measured at 725 yards. She shot him
as he was bent over burying the bomb. The shot went through his butt and into the bomb
which detonated; he was blown to pieces. The Air Force made this motivational poster of her:
