a lot of these are special forces pictures…..right on..
thank you guys great job! thank you for your service( the women too) Doing one hell of a job! Chive On!
Thanks to all for their service. Thank you for risking yours to save ours! I do have an issue with one of the pictures tho. #8 guy on the left is clearly not a US troop however he is wearing BDU's with an American flag pointed the wrong way and is holding a rifle….I dunno it just seems a little weird.
He's probably their interpreter. I don't believe they're held to the same uniform standards, as they are not technically soldiers, and the flag is more for IFF identification since interpreters are often equipped with indigenous weapons like the AK.
Public relations my friend, win their hearts, win the war.
Inspiring post, that men are capable of being more than what they simply do; sometimes it's hard to remember when things get buried under the complications of life but I suppose that's what makes a professional.
One of the most poignant posts I've seen on theBrigade.
#24 is PsyOps/Civil Affairs! That was my first unit when I joined the Army. I'm kind of sorry I ever left. I switched into the National Guard and joined a field artillery unit, and when we went to Italy, the PsyOps unit went to Afghanistan and Iraq.
IMHO, this is the way to be present in a country like Afghanistan…small units that are well-supported. NOT large-scale military buildup as there was in Iraq. You can't win hearts and minds with large units, but you can't beat the bad guys unless our small units are equipped and supported properly.
Franklin you are as always most insightful I appreciate reading your posts as they are always great learning experiances thanks again for your service and education
Thanks, Stan! I'm just happy to have a place where I can "talk shop." Thanks for your appreciation!
Thanks for posting these here, because you will NEVER see these in the anti-American, anti-military state run US media.
Alright Glenn Beck, calm down.
This are IMPERIALIST OPPRESSORS!!! Why do we celebrate crusaders who bomb villagers with cowardly drone attacks? Giving a kid sneakers while murdering his father does nothing!!!! Until we end capitolism Amerikkka will continue to murder brown people. OCCUPY WALL SREET!! Re-elect OBAMA!!!
You fail at life
kind of funny, I've always found that the weaker a movie/statement/thought…so on, the more exclamation marks follow the sentence
On a personal note Rick ty for fixing the site, it was driving me crazy
What do you like more?
The record poverty, the record debt, the record deficits, the record unemployment, the record number of people on food stamps, the record dollar devaluation or the soon to be record inflation?
Thanks for showing us all that you never supported are troops and only pretended to be against the war when Bush was in office. Now we're in two more countries under the watch of the Teleprompter Tyrant, and you're happy. BRILLIANT!
Syrin well said,not to be a spelling nazi, I want you to know it is our not are ok? "supported are troops" " supported our troops" other than that you had awesome points thanks for posting
Yeah, I don't edit my posts at all. I would have caught that but thanks. never hurts to be reminded.
Drones are highly accurate and effective and better chances off success without risking friendly fatalaties.
Not cowardly, but smart. Something the enemy is incapable of.
The troops are nothing more than tools.
you cannot hold a tool responisble for its actions, it is always under the control of someone.
Support the troops, fuck the war.
No you're right. We should give them nothing and behead them in the name of our religion or lack there of, your way is better I agree with you wholeheartedly.
Support the Troops, keep fighting the good fight.
i'm voting for obama again, but you're still a douche
Rock on men and women of our Armed Forces !! Be safe, come home soon.
Ukeme Ulegwe is a prime example of the stupidity that runs rampant in the "Occupy Wallstreet" group

Counterinsurgency at its finest.
