Long Rifle: One Man's Deadly Sniper Missions in Iraq and Afghanistanby Joe Lebleu
An excerpt from Long Rifle
Night and day, throughout September, I was on more missions than any other sniper.
I was sweat-soaked and tired and hungry all the time. . . . I remember telling my team, Who gives a shit, well get all the sleep we need when were dead and I dont intend on dying just yet.
I remember saying that a lot throughout the tour in Fallujah, Ill get all the sleep I need when Im dead, and my team would smile and Eggleston would say, Roger that. They must have really thought that Id lost it; no doubt, my pearls of wisdom kept them on their toes. . . .
Something that a lot of people dont understand is that in the middle of hell, the only thing that youve got is comedy.”
