yeah, the designated marksman program was great if you unit T&OE called for it.

Being a Cav Unit, who were expected to stem the red hoarde at the Fulda Gao with a barrage of TOW missiles, we were, at the individual platoon level, were not deemed worthy of such goodies.

However, our Headquarters Troop was liberally so equipped with M-16A4s with nice optics and M-14s with nice optics.


Thankfully our Troop Commander understood the mission and allowed for them to be issued out to the Platoons, but only on a one per basis.

A Squad Designated Marksman would have been nice.
