At Fort Benning June 19, a Soldier enrolled in the U.S. Army Sniper Course at Fort Benning and already camouflaged in a ghillie suit, adds to his camouflage by affixing natural vegetation to himself and his rifle, during training in how to stalk targets. Most students sent for training with the Sniper Course are Soldiers already stationed with units around the Army. But Fort Benning’s Maneuver Center of Excellence recently began testing a way for Soldiers who’ve completed Fort Benning’s Infantry One-Station Unit Training and are still new to the Army, to volunteer for sniper training while still here. MCoE has set up a five-day OSUT Soldier Sniper Assessment, which is a condensed version of the seven-week Sniper Course. Those who make it through the Assessment get a chance to go on to the Sniper Course itself.
