20 Confirmed Kills

LCpl Galen Wilson, a 21-year old Marine infantryman with 3rd Battalion, 8th Regiment, is following in the footsteps of his father, who was a sniper in the Navy SEALS. He is the designated marksman for his unit and carries a sniper rifle. He has 20 confirmed kills in Iraq and another 40 probable kills.

On Easter Sunday, during a large-scale attack, he noticed six gunmen on the roof of a building about 400 yards away. In eight seconds, he had taken out five of the gunmen with a well-placed headshot - one shot, one kill. The sixth one was in his sights when the gunman decided to try his luck diving off the 3-story building rather than wait for the same fate as his compadres. He probably died from the fall.

Wilson is planning to join a Florida SWAT team after his contract expires next year.
