Oh boy here I go ranting again. Fair warning, this is a dense one. For real. But that’s because this is one I’ve wanted to cover for a long time and have a lot of thoughts about. A lot. Yes my guys, gals, and non-binary pals, we’re finally talking about the United States’ Special OperationsContinue reading ““What Should It Look Like?” Part VI: Special Operations Forces”
