SFC Dunlap, Christopher

This picture was taken in December 2005 in Ar Ramadi. Left to right are SPC Turrbiartes (M240B AG), SPC Fyffe (M240B Gunner), and myself. I used my ACOG the entire year with great success. I never lost a zero or made an adjustment even after climing over courtyard walls, clearing rooms, or through shooting. Awsome product. Am currently back in Iraq for the third time and have my TA01NSN on my M4. Won't deploy without one!!

"My TA31F in Heart Province Afghanistan. Providing over watch during a Key Leader Engagement (in a known hostile area), My ACOG really enhances my situational Awareness. It was a personal investment with a lifelong payoff." SSG M. Tucker, 1st Infantry Division, Transition Team (Photo taken by SSG R. Washington)

Gunnery Sergeant Joel Shaver\'s TA11 Testimony

\"The first picture is of my ACOG Training at Camp Horno. Before our Battalion deployed to Iraq our company was issued 30 TA11\'s to Marines who were high shooters and Marines with special billets. We were given training on the use of the scopes at different distances to make us that much better in a combat zone.

Our battalion commander allowed us to purchase and use our own scopes during our deployment. I purchased a TA11 and was allowed to do the training.

The picture below was taken while our battalion, the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) I MEF for OIF2, was working in the Sunni Triangle. My TA11 made a big difference in seeing what was going on far beyond iron sites. I am amazed at how well my ACOG did in helping me identify friendlies as well as foes. Once you go ACOG there\'s no going back to open sites. I now use the scope on my personal M4 rifle. Love the scope.

Notable Progress

Despite a recent rash of insurgent attacks, Marines from Lima Company say they are making notable progress equipping the Iraqi Army with the necessary skills to take over security operations in this city of 30,000 nestled along the Euphrates River northwest of Baghdad. Mounted in humvees, the mobile assault platoon gives Iraqi Security Forces here the means to respond to incidents much quicker than on foot. The MAP's quick response recently led to the capture of 20 detainees. More notable progress came earlier this month when the company of Iraqi soldiers partnered with Lima Company conducted their first company-sized security operation: they cordoned-off and searched a village in the city for insurgents and weapons caches. The soldiers also talked to the local populace about future police recruitment - another step towards improving security conditions in the region.

Be Prepared.

Kandahar, Afghanistan: Uncle Sam doesn't always spend enough taking care of our Armed Forces in our Global War on Terrorism, so sometimes we have to take care of ourselves. As an Army Aviator, my primary duty of flying our infantry and Special Forces brethren into and out of battle doesn't entail a lot of shooting, so while our ground forces are fairly well equipped with small arms and optics, us aviators tend to end up short. Still, I like to be prepared for the worst. In case I go down, I'll have a better ability to keep the terrorists at a distance with my ACOG-equipped M4 carbine. Accessories, like the hard-to-find Trijicon ACOG Screw and Washer Set and Tenebraex KillFLASH, were key to outfitting my rig for duties outside the wire. Thanks SWFA and Trijicon!
