Subject: Old Grunt-sniper school

You listed sniper in your member profile. Did you happen to go to the XVIII Airborne Corps AMTU Sniper School at Ft. Bragg, SOTIC, or both? I went to the AMTU school in the summer of 1985 and loved it! Truly the best school I got to attend. A very good course even if it was never DA recognized. It closed it's doors when the official program started at Ft. Benning in 1987. You know, of course, if you went to SOTIC I will be overcome with immature jealousy!

Alas, I am pre-SOTIC. Started with a one-week "weed-out" pre-sniper run by the group, then went to Benning to attend the AMU's "Specialized Marksmanship Program" which became the sniper school, and then was sent to Quantico for the Marine Scout/Sniper Course.
