” The following is the account and history directly from the organization we all need to support.

In late 2003, a small group of U.S. police snipers formed a support network to address the operational equipment needs of U.S. military snipers deployed abroad in the war on terror.

Formerly known as “The Adopt A Sniper” program, the effort began as a simple request for assistance among deployed friends, whom were also peace officers serving in the National Guard and Reserve. These peace officers were employed as SWAT team snipers at home in the U.S. and were also assigned as snipers within the United States military.

As the initial war in Afghanistan stabilized and the war in Iraq progressed, the urban mission profiles of police and military snipers were found to overlap. The gear and supplies needed to accomplish the two missions were found to be virtually identical. Once deployed, these military snipers requested assistance from their SWAT sniper friends in procuring the specialized gear, which was better suited for their missions and but not supplied by their parent military entity for a variety of reasons.”
