    Have fun and enjoy that opportunity. From what my friends that did the Marine Sniper School told me, often it is not the shooting that gives students problems, but fieldcraft and the stalks.

    Good luck, brush up on your math. For you stupid Marines out there the army doesn't have a sniper as an MOS, it is an identifier after your MOS
    I thought they took scouts off the MOS's for the school. I thought it was back to 11 and 18 series. The have gone back and forth on that. I have been out just 5 years. I am at JSOC now consulting till next week.
