I actually watched this... Sniper: Deadliest Missions ...last night on the Hitler Channel. In the background when they're interviewing Carlos Hathcock you can see the VA license plate that formerly adorned his pickup. Anyone care to guess how it read... :D

You might also note that our former forum owner appears briefly demonstrating his secret ballistic gelatin recipe.

Yep, I had not realized that "the Apache" was a female VC sniper.

And Carlos should have been awarded the MOH for pulling those Marines out of that burning Amtrak.

If I'm not mistaken, CP actually met White Feather once...

Marine Sniper was a pretty good account of Carlos' exploits. The story about his C.I.A. backed mission to infil/exfil deep into the north for the assasination of a high ranking NVA officer was worth the price of the book.

Pretty amazing what one man with a rifle and a well rounded set of skills can do.
