Book Review: The Reaper: Autobiography of One of the Deadliest Special Ops Snipers

The Reaper: Autobiography of One of the Deadliest Special Ops Snipers by Nicholas Irving with Gary Brozek is a first-hand account of Nicholas Irving's tour in Afghanistan in 2009, during the beginnings of the US surge in that region. During his 100-day tour in Afghanistan, Sergeant Irving served with the Army's Special Operations 3rd Ranger Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment as a Master Sniper. The Reaper is his record of that his deployment and the 33 kills that he made during that 4-month period - a record for the number of enemy kills on a single deployment which still stands today.

Obama's Push for Vet Hiring - A Rocky Success

Military veterans

The push to improve employment prospects for veterans after they return home is paying off - about one in every three people hired by the federal government now is a military veteran - but it's also causing confusion and resentment in both civilians looking for the same jobs and those doing the hiring.

If you're enlisting in the Army soon (or even thinking about it), make sure that you can pass the Army's Physical Fitness Test (APFT) before you even ship off to BCT!
