    Warning, cut and paste ahead..........Pfc. Stephen Tschiderer, a native of Mendon, N.Y., and a medic with E

    Troop, 101st “Saber” Cavalry Division, attached to 3rd Battalion, 156th Infantry

    Regiment, 256th Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, was shot in the

    chest by an enemy sniper, during a routine patrol in west Baghdad.

    While Tschiderer was relaying information to the truck commander of his

    M114 Humvee, an enemy sniper team prepared to engage him from inside of a

    cushioned silver van being used as a mobile sniper’s nest. This nest was lined

    with numerous bed mattresses to muffle the sound of a Dragonoff sniper rifle

    fired through a hole just big enough for the shooter to engage his target of

    choice.

    Tschiderer was knocked to the ground from the sudden impact of the

    sniper’s bullet. The bullet only seemed to have fazed this Soldier as, adrenaline

    pumping, he sprang right back up in order to take cover and locate the enemy’s

    position.

    The sniper was unsuccessful in his mission, due to the stopping force of

    the Tschiderer’s daily wardrobe, his protective body armor, which saved his life.

    “I knew I was hit, but was uncertain of the damage or location from the

    hit,” Tschiderer said. “The only thing that was going through my mind was to take

    cover and locate the sniper’s position.”

    “The shot came from my 12 o’clock position from a silver van parked

    across an intersection about 75 meters from my location.” said Tschiderer.

    After Tschiderer alerted his fellow Soldiers of the enemy location, they

    immediately began to pursue the terrorists.

    Due to his heroic actions and quick decisions, Tschiderer located the

    enemy while he took cover and alerted the rest of his team on patrol. As the

    Saber team engaged and disabled the sniper’s position, two terrorists fled on

    foot, leaving a blood trail that came from the wounds of the enemy sniper.

    A cordon and search was immediately set up and Tschiderer assisted his

    team in the search of the two terrorists. The driver of the silver vehicle was

    detained by a team from B Co. 3-156th Inf. Bn. while Tschiderer and a team from

    B Company, 4th Battalion, 1st Iraqi Army Brigade, continued to follow the blood

    trail which led them to the yard where the wounded sniper lay in pain.

    As Tschiderer secured the terrorist with a pair of handcuffs, he gave

    medical aid to the wounded terrorist—the same one who’d tried to take his life.

    I wouldnt have thought that a ballistic vest would be able to stop a 7.62x54

    He was probably shot with an AK-47, a rifle with famously bad ballistics---probably just glanced him.

    Thanks for that post wicked.

    No, it wasnt an AK-47. He was shot with a Dragunov sniper rifle. A weapon that fires a 7.62x54 round. The reason that he was'nt killed is because the fuckin rag heads cant shoot. All they know to do is run up to you and blow themselves up. And by the way, the AK-47 is ballisticlly better than our M-4 rifle. The difference is that the AK is like a blunt stick but the M-4 is like a surgical tool.

    The ak-47 is infamously inaccurate, but fires no matter what. the m-4 is accurate, but keep it clean or it missfires.

    I was just guessing at the AK-47...but if he was actually shot by a sniper, wouldn't he be dead?

    Shit, the last time I shot my m-4 it was dirty as hell and still fired without a problem. The M-16 was the one that had a problem with misfires, because when it was issued in Vietnam the wonderful people in the penny pinching department said that cleaning kits were'nt needed, the reciever didnt need to be chrome plated, and they switched over to ball powder.

    They also used a dirtier powder to save money.Which causes a gumming effect.But the m-4 is a reliable weapon.Think about this...wouldn't you love to share the joy of building a snow man for the first time with these animals?

    He deserved to die, he is an invading unwelcome American terrorist and should fuck off back home where he and his bullets belong, end of story.
