There is a special breed of Marine for whom the prey is the enemy—and every day is hunting season. This Marine is a HOG—a Hunter of Gunmen.
These are the gripping, gut-wrenching true stories of those Marines in Iraq whose sole purpose on the battlefield is to eliminate the enemy—one combatant at a time. Every time a HOG puts his eye to the glass, it means death for his target.
Here, former Scout/Sniper Team leader Milo S. Afong reveals what it takes to be a Hunter of Gunmen. He describes the intensive training that turns expert infantrymen into one-shot life-takers, how they operate in the field—and under fire—and how HOGs get the job done under any conditions.
From sniping from a rooftop in Baghdad, to unknowingly being surrounded in a palm grove in the city of Hit, these stories will transport you right into the heat of the desert war, where one squeeze of the trigger can make all the difference.
