I really enjoyed reading "Lone Survivor". I will have to read "Service" next. Thanks for the tip as I didn't know Marcus had written a second book. If I am lucky, I would like to get my copy of Lone Survivor autographed too. I plan to watch the DVD. I read Jaws, then saw the movie. The was a lot of detail in the book lost in the movie.

Not trying to second guess them just saying what I was thinking. Just shows how the rules of engagement can impact real world scenarios.

Every time I read one of your posts I want to bang my head against a wall.
You're obviously a big expert on ground warfare. Maybe you should go to Little Creek or Coronado and tell the boys at DEVGRU how it's done. Better yet, you can meet me at MacDill and I'll introduce you to some guys I know at JSOC. I'm sure they'll appreciate your input. Maybe McCraven can keep you on board as his deputy.

And McRaven is no longer Head of JSOC...
But Shoo is good for a laugh. 7.62: We all Should Commend Shoo. He Single handily won The War in Iraq by himself.... He should be a Trainer at Bragg or Benning..
If he were in Training in my day he'd be a blanket party candidate in one of the classes I was in...
