I was a "dirty nasty leg" and proud. I did a lot of jobs that unconventional forces did, without the chromey go-fast gear.
Baghdad - the SEALS at the compound brought us our meals
Fallujah - marines checked our ID at the gate
Iraq - SAS took up all the space in the one pool I saw while in country (however they did give some good classes)
Kuwait - Aussie SAS are the only people I have ever seen that bleed while playing hacky sack - love those guys
The unsung heroes are the men of the FFL. Their good days would make most of us plead to our gods for mercy. They don't have the good gear, they don't
have much of anything. But, they are hard to compete with in operations.
As a soldier I would just know life was gonna suck if I started a deployment at Rochambeau Airport.
