So you wanna be a sniper? There are a few things to consider apart from the cool pictures you see of snipers at work, just browse this page and join us in our Photo Of The Day. This is the U.S. Army Sniper School Ghillie Wash, at Fort Benning, Georgia, into week three of the U.S. Army Sniper School.
Apparently, their Ghillie suits were dirty already, so they had to be washed! We take a look at 35 students as they participate in the “ghillie wash”, which is designed to “test the strength and durability of the suits as well as weather them“.
It looks like a few push-ups were made as well.
Sniper School students use sand, water and mud, all in an effort to perfect one of their most important tools: their camouflage.
