The Battle of the Bulge, one of the most bloodiest battles in American history. He is 86 years old, damn, he wasn't even 20 during that battle. Can you even start to imagine the fear he must have expeinced. One of the greatest armies of its time, withdrawing under a barrage of fire and metal.

He still has nerves of steel and a steady eye. My hat comes off for him.

Hats off to the venerable old Gentleman. It just goes to show that once a sniper, always a sniper. We Brits call what the Gentleman demonstrated as 'Good Skills!' and he has them in spades!

His eyesight must still be in the 20/10 range. Remarkable considering his age. A natural born sniper I suspect.
