Adelbert F. "Bert" Waldron III, (March 14, 1933 – October 18, 1995) was a United States Army sniper who served during the Vietnam War with the 9th Infantry Division. Although little known, until 2011 Waldron held the record for confirmed kills by any American sniper in history at 109. Although U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle later acquired more confirmed kills, Waldron worked in a jungle environment where target opportunities were less commonplace, whereas Kyle worked in a target-rich urban environment where the rules of engagement were more lax.
