@KimberlyHilton Glad you liked it, hopefully you read The Red Circle too…some great fill in the blanks with this one.
@CarpeNoctem I actually pulled the book from Simon and Schuster because they had so many issues. I re-placed it with Penguin and my editor Brent, super good guy.
@TylerD32 Thanks TylerD32
@michaelMUrray07 @BrandonWebb It does share more detail. Read it and if you have more questions I'll write it up and take care of any gaps.

@Minou_Demimonde Thank you for the feedback…Slattery…well, me too!
@steelhorse Thank you, I think so too.
@RobbyRobinson1 Lang is our cartoonist and we support his work. And sometimes we like to poke fun and fan the fire, it is what it is. Personally, I've made my opinion well known about the JV situation. It's SOFREP, we're not angels and we like to have fun, including Bob Lang our guy behind the toons….

@ChristopherGleason Polymer can break, that's why I like stainless. I've seen several polymer Glocks broken in half from abuse, it's extreme but...
@Explosive Hazard Good to hear, it's a solid pack that could evolve to greatness if a few improvements were made.

@joesig @BrandonWebb @Bombsqd318
I don't believe Chris sucker punched JV. There's no proof of this, unless you have something I don't.
It's all speculation because the stories are all over the map, and this leaves us to interpret the information we have based on the people we are and the bias we carry around with us. I was a JV fan up until he started chanting about how 9/11 was a government sponsored inside job. This is ridiculous and when I got off the JV boat.
Putting the fight in the book was a poor decision, and I know one of the writers involved didn't want to include the story because of a potential legal issue. The publisher/editor wanted to include it anyway. Most editors I've encountered care about selling books, they don't give a crap about much else. Regardless, this decision could have been overruled by CK, so he had to live with the consequences.
I don't think Chris would've been the first Team Guy to be facing an alcohol related incident if JV pressed charges and he isn't innocent in all of this as you point out. I agree with you there.
Chris was a friend, I'm a part owner of this site with two other veterans (it isn't mine alone), and the one thing that I enjoy is that we can discuss this type of stuff without getting ugly.
Regarding JV trying to clear his name, I didn't have a problem with him going after Chris to settle this. My problem was when he switched the suit and targeted a dead Team Guy's widow and family and the circus that resulted after this decision was made.
@leiber Are you trying to get banned by being disrespectful? Because that's the road you're on right now. Lol

@leiber Why would we have to prove anything? Or worry about protecting our side?
@Farmer Brown Agreed, a defamation suit against CK, not his spouse and kids…at least not until Jesse shifted fire. Like I said, my big problem was him going after a grieving family and how he conducts himself in the public eye. He could have sued the publisher Harper Collins for including that story in the book, and for pushing it on the PR trail which I believe came out in discovery.
@leiber We have invited him twice and reached out again. The ball is in his court.
@Mino1 @BrandonWebb @Bombsqd318 You are making an ungrounded assessment. It lacks facts to back it up. You and I both don't know what was said in the bar that night. What we do know, that has been admitted to by both parties, is that they were both present at the bar that night. Everything else, including what was said, is up for grabs.
@leiber We've extended the invite to Ventura twice now. He can have the floor if he'll accept. Like I said in this article, it's my opinion, and I'm entitled to it. I'm not trashing people for disagreeing either…
@Bombsqd318 To be fair and constructive (which we welcome here) you make some good points. Like I said, I could care less about the "he said, she said", it is about the way JV conducts himself in the public eye (as a former Frogman), and that he took an issue that was between him and Chris, turned it into a spectacle and ultimately drug his family into it after Chris was murdered.
@sifiauthor The boots were missing from mine as well. Just threw a pair of my Zamberlin's in my FJ.

@Jeff L Gonzales @Farmer Brown There's also the fact that Chris donated 100% of his proceeds from the book to Marc Lee's mom's charity.
@SEAL76 Well said brother.

@RaymondGaule Mexico isn't the problem, the problem is at home. There's too much incentive for people to cross the border. The masses make it easy for terrorists to slip by undetected. It's a mess, and a problem for over four decades.

@majrod Thanks Rod.
@A7Dave Predator was a favorite of mine...now ruined.
@Jeff L Gonzales Thanks for sharing Jeff.
@Waterborne Well said.
@HonestBroker247 I've heard from a reliable source that the publisher/editor wanted to leave it in the book after the writers (not sure about Chris) wanted it taken out. I will say that dropping the JV bomb on radio and then O'Reilly was not a good idea, it opened up a can of worms.

@hitman483 Listen to the last Podcast with Jake and I think you'll see things differently.
@wmurch Thanks for the contribution. This is why I love SOFREP.
Wow..our Facebook page is a complete disaster on this thread in the comments section…another reason I'm glad we went to a membership model. This post was meant to perturb people and get the discussion going again. Mission accomplished I think.

@Jaycel Adkins @LawyerHandle Their new news site is an interesting concept based on adversarial journalism, which I like in theory. The big news media are often slave to "official DC leaks". The TV show House of Cards is more nonfiction then you think.
