There are shows on the Military Channel that re-enact SEAL and some Ranger Ops. My older son watches them all the time trying to get ready for when he joins up.

He wants to follow in Daddy's footsteps and go Special Ops (1st SFOD, Delta) but I think he is leaning towards SEAL Training. My daughter is in the Navy in San Diego and a couple of times we got to watch the SEALS Hell Week training from a distance.

Those guys are very tough, even the ones that wash out....

Wow.

How cool is that?!

One of my office managers is former Force Recon. I have no major problems with collections, because the man just knows how to work people. Not physically mind you, just really good at getting what we want.

My grandpa was in the CBI WWII with Merrill's Marauders, was screened by OSS 101. Wish he would have talked more about his service. Never said much.

As to the OP....heck, I'd probably read that book. Paperback.

One of my buddies from my A team was writing a book about our exploits in Central America, Afghanistan and when we were escorting nukes out of Germany and Turkey.

He got shut down by the government. THere used to be a website for one of the units we were attached to (160th SOAR) called nightstalkers.com but it got shut down because there was a section you could log onto and get things off of your chest and too many facts were coming to light.

But thanks to the freedom of Information act and the fact that some of the facts of the ops were released by the government to support PTSD claims (and a couple of legal battles) he is going to resume writing.

He wanted to use our real names but didn't want to cause problems for some of our buddies so he is going to use our nicknames.

I will let you know when he gets done but I must warn, there will be no candy coating or embellishments, just the facts with some humorous observations thrown in.

He is going to dedicate it to all of those who gave their lives behind the scenes....

I look forward to that read.

I much prefer the real story, warts and all, rather than glossy hollywood junk.

Really great.
