What if I went to a US Government site like the Federal Business Opportunities:
https://www.fbo.gov/

Then under Keyword/ Solicitation # I searched for "special operations forces" (leaving in the quotation marks):

As of this post I MIGHT return 21 results, a number of which are from those super-secret "Naval Special Warfare Development Group" guys.

OMG!!!!! Can you believe they go skydiving and actually need TRAINING? Maybe they aren't that l33t?

TIME Magazine’s Blog Gets it ALL Wrong about SEAL Team Six: A Navy SEAL’s Perspective
we are tired of the press and industry getting it all wrong with everything Special Operations. The recent Times blog post by Mark Thompson is a great example. He obviously has no idea what he’s talking about, and is indeed proof that they ARE in contradiction with their “military intelligence” blog title.
Mark is quoted saying:
“Who’d have thunk the gang that got bin Laden would have to go outside their own tight circle to study pugilism? “

Well let me tell you something Mark, smart people bring experts to help and to learn new perspective. We’ve been doing it for years and who’d of thunk it? The US Special Operations community that’s who Mark.​
FYI-We don’t call it Team 6 and the patch pictured isn’t a legitimate unit patch.
So the usual suspects continue to get it wrong and just don’t leave well enough alone. There’s a time and place for good story and we’ve had enough crumb snatching for now. Should we expect to see a DEVGRU commentary about their acquisition of cleaning supplies next?

The truth is, that many different units are doing great clandestine work that most will never hear about. I guess it’s a good thing that major outlets and journalists continue to get it wrong and keep digging in the trash for leftovers. Don’t get me wrong, a few news agencies and journalists get it right and know when enough is enough. I guess I’m tired of most getting it wrong. At least there’s finally a place to get a Special Operations perspective.
One Team, One Fight.
