Different Tactics for Different Groups & Objectives

What comes to mind when you hear the word “tactic?”  As a former Green Beret, my first thought used to be either The Ranger Handbook or FM 7-8 (Field Manual for the Infantry Rifle Platoon and Squad).  These two books teach the tactical doctrine used by the US Army combat arms, for everyone from an Infantry squad rifleman to a Special Forces ODA (Operational Detachment-Alpha).

The knowledge inside of these two books was drilled into my head for years, beginning in

What if #Q, #QAnon and #TheGreatAwakening are Real?

What if #Q, #QAnon and #TheGreatAwakening are Real?

By this point you may have heard Q mentioned online, whether in conservative circles or somewhere in your social media feed.  You likely didn’t pay too much attention to it, as many of us have known for a long time that nefarious, shady and corrupt elements exist within our government.  

If you’ve looked into anything regarding The Clinton Foundation you probably made a reasonable guess that she had been likely selling her presidency since her time at the State Department, but perhaps you didn’t go much further down the rabbit hole to see exactly who she was selling favors to, nor what those favors were.

Heroes Finance 101: Understanding Retirement Plans

Gone are the days of our parents and grandparents in which retirement after working for a company for twenty years earned you a gold watch, pension and comfortable golden years.  The removal of pension plans from most major companies has angered many, but if you put yourself in the shoes of the owners and/or managers of those companies it makes sense.

Special Forces in Niger: Commentary from a Former Green Beret Who Helped Start the Mission a Decade Ago

I’ve been watching the news with clenched teeth and a heavy heart for the past few weeks, hearing all of the nonsense regarding the tragedy in Niger and understanding just how juvenile both the “journalists” reporting on the subject and politicians discussing it are.  

I say this because as a US Army Special Forces Medic (18D) I was attached to one of the first ODAs into Niger a decade ago, and wrote about that experience in my book, “Love Me When I’m Gone: The True Story of Life, Love and Loss for a Green Beret in Post-9/11 War,” which was published in 2012.

I actually took the time to go through the Pentagon’s Office of Security Review and receive clearance
