    Powerful stuff. Women want combat arms and they do not understand that Afghanistan is not Vietnam and combat will mostly be heading back in that direction.

    I just came from meeting this Soldier and it was a pleasure. I purchased his book and he autographed it. I will post the photo shortly.

    Good stuff Chief, I heard about this guy and read up on his heroism with his Airborne buddies. He was asked by a reporter if he was an exceptional soldier, and he said he wasn't, he was just average. Just average in a situation like that doing what he did equals exceptional in my view... His courage was well beyond what was expected from his level of training, which is why he rightly wears the MOH.. All I wish for him now is to find some peace in his life!!..

    I think Afghanistan will never be Vietnam for two reasons, Vietnam was a determined enemy dug into a political ideology and way of life that had huge support from the USSR and China with a societal fabric that defined a disciplined and obedient culture whom where ripe for war against the US Invaders as they saw it. Afghanistan has NO social fabric and relies on fundamentalist Islam to ease the suffering of its people and give it all meaning in the name of Allah... This creates an international patronage that the Pakistanis have used very well (albeit cruelly) to their own ends. I think the ability of conventional forces (Allies) to do any more is coming to an end organically and a new unconventional war will herald an age of great stability or instability in an already unstable and troubled land will come to pass. Remember, Vietnam was conventionally winnable if the intel led tactics were given another 2 years by a war weary US nation whereas the face of Afghanistan has a motivated enemy for different reasons and merely keeping the peace is more complicated then any sovereign conflict.. until those whom should be doing something positive in this world do it, all we can do is stop the rot temporarily to give peace a chance.. if they blow it now, then thats on them!!.. No excuses, no exceptions!!.. Its time for them to step up on the political aswell as the security end and start burning those cancerous areas out of their society... their children's children will thank them... I would call it a civil war, but to be honest, its a Pakistani Afghan problem that needs alliances, not betrayals on both sides of the border to bring peace and stability to both lands.. that wont happen until the ISI stop seeing a stable Afghanistan as a strategic threat... to quote Bob Dylan "why cant we just all get along"... lol..

    Great you got to meet him Chief, he's a credit to the US Army, its Airborne and a standard of valor for the next generation...

    Post when you can bud...

    Best Regards

    If my son was taken I'd leave him to his own devices & feel sorry for the takers. I've seen him in action in his Judo tournaments & his PT regimen. If I helped him it would only impede him, lol.

    LOL.. roger that Chief, lets see if she shows up again.. that said, that documentary is a must see for everybody... yikes, talking about bringing you back in time to the war... amazingly put together.. actually, thinking about it, Im not sure if everybody should watch it.... its so well put together in my view, any 'Nam vets whom are still affected by PTSD may want to give it a skip...
