SOF Warriors --

Let me say up front that I have the deepest respect for what you have done, do today, and will do in the months and years ahead. It's been an absolute pleasure serving in the SOF community, however briefly.

My time as the MARSOC PAO has come to a close. As of today, 2 Jun 08, I am officially detached from MARSOC and attached to the 2d MARDIV to direct public affairs ops for that storied element of the Corps.

My hope is that I engaged as a PAO for MARSOC in a way that was helpful both to this community and the public in general. My replacement, Capt. Michael (Maj. Select) Armistead is a solid Marine and a savvy PAO. I have every confidence he'll take what small ground I gained and advance the front line. You should hear from him shortly as a member of this forum who is ready to field the next generation of questions about MARSOC and the future of Marines in SOF.

For any who may want to reach me in the future, I can be reached by private line at cwg@usmcpao.com

In service, I remain:

Semper Fidelis!
Cliff "Hap" Gilmore
Major, United States Marine Corps

PLEASE NOTE: As official representatives of MARSOC, both Capt. Armistead and I are FULLY AWARE OF OPSEC concerns and our names are used here for full attribution expressly to AVOID anonymity because we are PUBLIC representatives. Bottom line: our names are NOT secrets.

Good look and stick around

Gook luck in the new post Major.

If I can judge by your comments here about MARSOC and the way you posted, IMHO you are a credit to the Corps.

Informative, with solid arguments and open minded. Stick around.
