The Sharpshooter by Larry Selman
When Darrell "Shifty" Powers hunted squirrels as a boy, he never knew his sharpshooting would someday save lives. Now, during Easy Company's assault on Foy, he'll rely on everything he's learned. A German sniper is at work. At first, Shifty saw just a cloud of breath. The sniper was around a corner, lying in wait. But this time when the enemy shows himself, Shifty is ready. His M1 barks, and his comrades press on. Only later will one find the sniper with a hole in his forehead, leading the witness to declare: "You know, it just doesn't pay to be shootin' at Shifty when he's got a rifle."
