Rick's is gone but I heard stories about it.
As far as people taking pics and movies of operations, shame on them unless they use them for non-public reasons.

Delta does recrute. Back in Ft. Hood in the dfac aka dining facility, there were fliers with info required for those interested in trying out for "selection". Such as GT and PT score minimum for those interested.
The recruter who recruted me, for my first enlistent was an SF guy. He had the tab and unit combat patch, among other "bona fides". The SSGT at the time, was the NCOIC or head of the recruting station, and they were recruting then as well.

Wooooo! Yeah!........... or something to that effect.
Looks like some eight year olds were left with some video editing kit and a stack of stock army footage, they were then unleashed with orders to create an "Awesome Beefcaketastic Super Army Manfest that only a Real Man would enjoy" movie.

The "smoke bomb hill" quote was quite funny, and anyone who knows anything would know about that place. They would also know about Chicken Road, Huske, Paddy's, and Sharky's or Secret's.
Hay Street in general, but especially Rick's Lounge.
They tell me Hay Street has been turned into little art shoppes now. What a shame.
Victory Drive hasn't though, although the places I remembered all seem to be gone.
I think this vid isn't the real thing.
Sort of surprised by people putting their faces on it if it is.
But then I was also surprised a couple of years back by SEALs carrying digital cameras with them on missions and posting the photos on a website. With photos of each other DURING the mission.
Whatever happened to keeping logs, diaries or photos being a security problem?

Also, many many SF groups that aren't as finessed as Delta or Team 6 can do just about everything in those videos. Whoopy they attack a car with a 4 man detachment sitting on the outside of a little bird. Lots of SF guys do that.
Also, nothing fancy about those dynamic entries and the shooting was what one would expect from just about any SF group. And there was some footage of the guys getting nastycar training. Which many SF groups get training in too. Nothing to show that htese guys are with DELTA. alot of reasons in the video that they aren't. THe army doesn't have and real division between green berets and their other SF groups. to make everybody feel excepted and equal all of army SF is just called SFOD-D now. That add is basically the army equivalent of the navy commercials that go "become a SEAL' that we see on TV all the time. nobody ever sees commercials saying "hey join DEVGRU" or SEAL team 6.
Yeah...like Delta operates so differently that makes you impress. How exactly do you define as fancy in your view that qualifies as Delta? What do they need to show that they are Delta? This is how they operate.
