I didn't think a guy could be "Delta" with vision imperfections. Makes me wonder if those guys aren't from some other security detail. (other than Fillmore)

Is it a fact that those are Delta soldiers?

I've read that Norman wanted CAG to be his protection detail, other that than he approved the use of SOF only after the SCUD threat emerged.

I was thinking how ironic, that a guy who didn't like SOF insisted on the best as his PSD.

I hate him because of GO-1.

Did you ever get a chance to meet him in the field, RP? I heard he had two sides, and that to serve on his staff was an excruciating experience.

I ran into LTG Luck at his Corps HQ one day. Almost mistook him for an NCO, until I saw the stars on the collar. He was cool.

Yes,

He is the Fun Abatement Group member #1.

LMAO.

I didn't know there was another FAG out there besides the Film Actors Guild.

I didn't drink a lot while I was over there, but we met and were befriended by some Americans and Brits working and living at Aramco. Spent Thanksgiving and Christmas there, and there was no shortage of good, home distilled alcohol.
