Marine sniper puts his Mk 12 to work in Afghanistan (VIDEO)

“Helmand Province, Afghanistan – Moments after taking fire, U.S. Marines spot an armed Taliban fighter across the Helmand River where the ambush came from. After receiving clearance and confirming that he is in fact a Taliban fighter, the Marine Designated Marksman engages with a suppressed MK-12. This is a typical engagement for Marines fighting in Afghanistan, and contrary to popular belief, confirmation of targets is confirmed before engaging.”

Glad they’re on our side.
