Lifetime love of shooting pushes man to qualify
TELL CITY - A National Guard soldier assigned to the Tell City armory turned a lifelong talent into an extra way to serve his country before he deployed to the Middle East early this year.
Rockport resident Russell Christian's rank is specialist and his duty title is infantryman.
He's also a sniper.
"I joined because I wanted to fight for my country, and am from a military family," Christian said in responding to News questions by e-mail. "The school benefits are good too."
