Welcome to SOFREP Lucas! Glad to have your perspective.
2 days, 7 hours ago on Germany to form Jack Bauer’s CTU?
The same clever folks (or similar ones) coming up with all the tech will come up with ways to defeat it. But will be some big adjustments in business as usual. Good write up Jack. Lots to think about.

Current admin loves this no muss, no fuss mini destruction from afar. So much "cleaner" than actually having soldiers get up close and personal to the enemy to check out the real situation.

Got it pre-ordered Brandon. Can't wait! for others that purchase thru Amazon, can you add that link? I went back to the Nov 11, 2014 thread and the link is still valid there for both B&N and Amazon.

I have read several of the autobiographies in the last few years and have to say that was a great condensed presentation of experience and advice. I'm sure those pursuing the same goal will appreciate this article. Great job!

@Fred82 @AlexDwyer I remember several of us talking about that over a year ago and @SeanSpoonts saying it sounded more like schizophrenia or similar than someone dealing with PTS. So that article further supports that for me.

@SEAN SPOONTS(MAFIA) Great comment Sean!
Brandon, I am glad to see you revise your opinion of the movie - if not some of the technical issues that I struggled with as well, but with the core of the movie that I felt did justice to the book and what Chris, and Taya through her written commentaries throughout the book, portrayed. I thought Clint Eastwood and the cast created a very good movie that will stand the test of time.

While this has turned into the joke hat keeps on giving, I'm not holding my breath for either a resignation or a firing. Look to his bosses and peers... they don't really care about what he claimed. They will care if the general public turns the channel and the ratings take an even bigger hit than they already have.

Welcome to SOFREP and totally agree that the semantic gymnastics this administration is practicing does no one any favors. They go out of their way to discount the issues.

1 month, 4 weeks ago on Gear and Clothing in Las Vegas: 2015 SHOT Show After Action Report
I didn't realize that there were that many troops in general deployed there. It would make sense that with those numbers the majority wouldn't be SF. I think the admin is enamored with SOF and agree with you that by saying SF is leading the mission, can gloss over the numbers of conventional troops to keep the narrative of "no boots on the ground."
2 months ago on Operation Inherent Resolve is mostly conventional troops
@BrandonWebb Thanks Brandon. Pre-ordered. I also need to get Chris Martin's book but didn't see an Amazon link for it. Did I miss it somewhere?

@BrandonWebb @LauraKinCA @SEAN SPOONTS(MAFIA) I agree. I had hoped after the initial furor with Biss was over that it would calm down... then we get "The Shooter" thru Esquire and the shit storm started again.... thought that would die... and here we are again...
@SEAN SPOONTS(MAFIA) I think that is my biggest problem with this whole thing too... I feel like it's made a mockery of a great set of special operators and the historical importance of the event.
YP - thanks for that write up! I had no idea about that program. RIP Charles Dicus.

Like I told a friend who posted today about his grandfather winning the Silver Star in WWII, I bet that is only one of many reasons (the award) to be very proud of your grandfather, as you most definitely have many reasons to be very proud. Thanks for sharing yours with us.
