With all combat jobs open to women, it was only a matter of time until this happened, but it looks like women will be required to register for the draft as soon as January of 2018.

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.
