Marine Sergeant Herbert Hancock - A Sniper You Should Know

Posted By Blackfive • [January 05, 2005]

    "This time we were killing terrorism from more than 1,000 yards." - Marine Corporal Geoffrey Flowers, spotter for Sergeant Hancock

Dan S. sends this great story about a Marine Reservist Sniper - Sergeant Herbert Hancock - that was credited with the longest kill shot in Iraq - over a thousand yards.  And he and his spotter (Corporal Flowers) made that shot after fighting for hours in Fallujah.

Sergeant Hancock is a Bryan, Texas, police officer when not protecting his fellow Marines.  Corporal Flowers is a college student from Pearland, Texas.
