no joke, I have 2 good buddies that are nuts. They are recon marines currently in Iraq. They return later this month and are planning a "push into
the test site. The reason you ask?? They are nuts, bored, young and full of napalm and testosterone. They will try in the summer when the heat is up
on the desert floor and rocks. They have ghilie suits, gear, patience, and fire. They plan on documenting everything with disposable waterproof
fujicams, as they have worked well in theatre, do not radiate or retain heat. everthing they take will be natural fibers, non synthetic to help
disperse heat and blend in. They have a route planned, lay up points, hides etc. They are planning on a 5 day operation, with 2 for infil and extract.
They will carry 4 100 oz camelback bladders, 4 MREs, and highspeed nutri gels. The wackenhut guys are in for a treat as these are some of the best
trained out there. There plan if caught? They are on a training exercise at Nellis..Might buy them some time, till court martial anyway. I can attest
first hand to security in the area as i have participated in red Flag a few times. During the pre exercise kick off brief, it is clearly explained
what areas are off limits to foot, vehicle or air traffic. The CSAR/TRAP portion we did had us jumping into an area and the bird droppped us of 5 km
to far to the west. We landed, recovered our gear, then started walking to the nearest road. 4 unmarked trucks scrambled to meet us, asking WTF we
were doing. Umm, smart ass answers aside we were escorted out and had to fill out disclosure statements about what we saw. Rocks, scrub, and more
scrub...never did that before for any big exercise as there are always too many moving parts. Well. I will keep evryone posted on what the dynamic duo
plans. One concern i do have, is the watchers on here..OPSEC is a major concern and it would not suprise me to see the security types on here purusing
the boards, seeing what everyone is doing...Im probably being flagged right now....WTF, I like fireworks and I am past promotion eligible. anyway.
They have even given the mission a name. Operation Desert Chameleon
