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.

Just finished The Brenner Assignment [ame]http://www.amazon.co...n/dp/030681577X[/ame]

Really great.
