Best training video to date: How to be an Operator

It’s hard to tell which part of this video is the most accurate – of course, I say that as a former POG. I was never a SOF operator, but I did read Task Force Black in a Holiday Inn last night.

Warning: language.

I haven’t followed all his suggestions; but does it count that I’ve grown a beard and have been PMing back and forth with Nealan and Murphy all week?

    Rangers are not “operators” they are infantrymen although they may take part in supporting special ops.

    rangers are great providing security for SOF operations. After 14 years, with the last four 18Z, I had to give it up my body was beat up. I was assigned to an NCOS Academy as an instructor for BNCOC and ANCOC. There were six ranger tabs at the academy. They would give me a ration of shit every day. Inside every ranger is a SF trooper wanting to get out but their GT’s way to low.
