In the WW2 game, I think that would be BAR gunner. If you want to be the BAR gunner, I'll be the sniper.

Oh, yeah.  Right.  I missed the WWII part.  Even though it's in that first post, clear as day.  Do you happen to teach a reading comprehension course I could enroll in?

Yeah, the WWII thing is gonna mean some research for me. Want to do it half way right at least.

By the way, wouldn't the sniper and the rifleman be the same guy in a fire team like this?

Not really. Snipers in WW2 were basically avid hunter / crackshots that had little or no formal training other than sitting still and shooting people. Riflemen were boys fresh off the farm for snipers to shoot as they sat there shooting people. At least, that's how I interpret it.

I just assumed they used their snipers for fixed positioning rather than assigning them to mobil units. I assumed the best rifle shot in the group would become the defacto sniper, unless we'd specifically been assigned a sniper.

Addition-
According to the Wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sniper) doesn't even look like we'd have a sniper as we think of them today, just a guy who's good with a rifle. Apparently American sharpshooters didn't hide in wait or anything, they just tried to shot guys a long way off.

Players list...

Awesome. The squad is coming together nicely. Seth, if Karee wouldn't mind playing, then she is more than welcome.

I'm about to go see if there is any interest from some of my players in a CoC pbp game I'm running currently. It's basically the same system, and they already play via pbp, so I think a couple of them might want to play too.

Excellent!

I've already talked to Dragon via email, so Tad, Seth, and Dawn, can each of you please send me an email to jonhook@gmail.com

Emailed, now just got to rewatch some inspirational films over the weekend. Namely, Enemy at the Gates.
