The Training of a Precision Shooter or sniper, TAP (for its acronym in Spanish), requires adverse circumstances in hostile areas, training sessions and high level physical tests, making men postulated to develop this course acquire the commitment and effort to deploy combat actions in larger or smaller units.
Fortunately for the institution, the lieutenant Leidy Patricia Rey Narvaez joined in 2009. At just 23 years, she is the first officer in the course of sniper, which is a very high achievement in the path of military women, placing women in any position, either administrative or combat.
For her it is a difficult task, an honor, to stand out among 38 men at the top of the course TAP, performing the same tests of their peers, which has required her to work constantly on her physical training, concentration and precision. These are tasks that require tranquility and security from snipers at the time of pulling the trigger. One of the Reys attributes is that she is ambidextrous, which means that she can shoot with both her right and left hand, creating a positive and added value among her partners.
Leidy has taken courses in advanced combat CAC (for its acronym in Spanish), Parachuting, Communications, Combat Intelligence and TAP. She projects a future in planning and directing military operations that generate results which change the history of the institution.
In 2013, she won first place in the category Pistola, in the shooting championship held in Tolemaida. Her passion, apart from being a military, is to be a sniper, more than any other combat specialty. She would like to do an advanced course and then be a shooting instructor.
Giving command of troops to female staff was an achievement for the Army. Furthermore, empower women to develop operations shows that the role of women continues to transcend. This lieutenant is the sign of the first steps. Nowadays, there are more outstanding female officers and non-commissioned officers who represent Colombia nationwide and worldwide.
