  1. This post regards an American Hero and was passed onto me by a friend. The story was featured on Shooting USA and the Outdoor Channel. Mr. Ted Gundy was a member of the 99th Infantry during World War II and was an expert sniper. He fought in the Battle of the Bulge and was proudly honored by the United States Army and their Marksmanship Unit. Mr. Gundy was afforded the special opportunity to hit a target at 1000 yards with modern equipment. Check out the video below. It is heartwarming and brings tears to the eyes. Thank you Mr. Gundy for your service to our nation.

    What an amazing story. Thanks to all that were instrumental in giving this old Warrior the opportunity to shoot again. And a heart felt thanks to Mr. Gundy for dedicated service to our country.
    I could hardly see the last few moments of the video, my screen kept getting blurry. But this was one of the finest nine minutes of my lifetime.

    Amazing that he could shoot so well at that age. He must have been feared by the enemy in WWII.
