@infinitycactus lol, if you had the opportunity to actually 'meet' the good Major you might be surprised to learn he is quite cordial, although he Always requires one to bring their A game to any discussion...
He and his Lovely wife are great at dinner parties and you can only imagine the incredible 'discussions' that transpire...6

"there are two Armies in Iraq"..the so called Iraqi Military and also a 'clone' of the Iranian Republican Guard??...

@green beret retired @YankeePapa @Recon6 @CarlRC GBR, glad you 'finally' arrived at SOFREP, we've been here for 3 years...
Interesting experiences you related, a lot of Vets, even from RVN, on this site...

@YankeePapa @green beret retired @CarlRC copy that YP, brought back a memory...
had Falciparum malaria and evac'd to 6th CC in Cam Ranh Bay, when the malarial episode was over, it was SOP to assign one to "filling sand bags" for two weeks in order to "build your body back up"...
that night I was at the air strip and caught a Huey to Pleiku and then on to Kontum....no way was I going to fill frkn sand bags, ha!...6

1 week, 5 days ago on Uzbekistan: U.S. Policy and the Changing Security Landscape of Central Asia
@CarlRC In agreement with "the reason we lost Nam was because of the lying, traitorous, commie media" !
would you not also consider @YankeePapa's assertion that the 'war of attrition' approach by those in 'command' was also a furtherance to loss? As YP stated, the North would/could continue to feed troops into the grinder, while the media remained complicit in false reporting...
while I did not consider Cronkite a 'traitor' I would assert he was merely a step above the mass of scum contributing false reports that led to a massive revolt on college campus' and bringing the entire effort to the forefront of American concerns...
I was there from early '68 to the end of '70, so I can't be a direct witness to the occurrences in America, other than what was reported in 'Stars and Stripes', and I don't recall a 'Joker' or 'Rafterman' in anything I read in the few instances we received a fresh copy, jmo....6
@CarlRC @YankeePapa while each of us had a different experience I will say I know of no one that had a positive interaction with the media...
personally, when we returned from a mission our standard reply to the putrescent reporters present was simply, "get the fuck away from me and my Team"...
it was bred into us that the media would Lie and print whatever they chose, thus it was best to avoid them and their brand of liberal b.s....jmo....6

however, I certainly have always maintained a certain protectiveness of the ladies of SOFREP, especially when we are fortunate enough to gather in 'exotic places'....
oh, and NYC SUKS, ha !! j/k (no guns allowed) inquiries as to 'meet ups' should be addressed to @LauraKinCA as she is and remains the 'official, unofficial, social director of SOFREP' and manages these get togethers quite well...6

Keep your comments to whatever is on your mind at the time.. wth, everyone brings something different to the table and that's what makes REP so interesting... the People!
I find it refreshing to be able to talk with you, knowing you have first hand knowledge of events, while we must avoid the msm and seek answers elsewhere...
Your wife makes the most sense, why keep killing our own ppl?? Hell, happens Everyday here and defies logic...6
@Waterborne hey bubba, from reading your comments the past several months I think you might have a big mouth as well as a big foot !! ha...
no worries, if we all fell into believing everything we read, from whomever posted it, it would not be worthy to be a member of SOFREP... we come here for differing opinions/experiences etc....
