Alaska fisherman's patience pays off as Marine scout sniper

Sergeant Emmanuel Velayo is a scout sniper serving with Scout Sniper Platoon, 1st Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment. Velayo, a 24 year-old native of Anchorage, Alaska, said using the ghillie suit to blend in with terrain is like playing hide and seek. The suit is made from torn burlap material sewn into his camouflage utilities. Velayo has been a part of the scout sniper platoon for five years. Upon graduating the school of infantry, Velayo's high physical fitness and marksmanship scores impressed previous snipers the platoon, who recommended him for the scout sniper course.
