20 min, i hope we aren't losing our audience. btw you may want to put this in the thread title. there is a live chat over at http://www.usanetwork.com/series/combatmissions/multimedia/chat.html
java client i guess. had about 10 people in there last week. they made it real hard to find originally, hopefully since the link is obvious now it'll start getting more folks. you can directly connect through irc if that's your thing.
Where are all the Marine Force Recon guys coming from? There seems to be an inordinate amount of them for some strange reason, despite Force Recon generally not being considered 'special forces'. There are no Airborne (75th Reg.) Rangers, Green Berets, Air Force Combat Rescue, etc.
<< the Philidelphia SWAT guy. Remember it was on the tank battle? >>
Oh man, that guy was way out of shape. But, he had ZERO military background, so putting 40-50lb rutsacks on his back and marching him double-time in that heat had to be a first for him.
Force/Recon is pretty elite as far as the Marines go, can't think of any others really. They are considered SFOD, but so are expeditionary units...
Rangers aren't really considered elite as most guys (Delta, Green Berets) go through Ranger training anyway. IIRC Seals can go through Ranger training also. Ranger's aren't the 1337 like Delta/GB, plus those guys have done what Rangers go through. Oh well.
There are several Green Berets. Before Ed got discharged tonight, there were:
4 seals, 1 Green Beret, 1 Swat on alpha
4 Swat, 1 seal, 1 force/recon on bravo
1 Delta, 1 force/recon, 2 swat, 2 seals on bravo (i want to say the new guy who replaced ed is a seal)
1 CIA, 2 force/recon, 1 Green Beret, 1 seal, 1 swat on delta
It gets sort of odd. The swat guy on delta used to be force/recon. Lots of the swat guys used to be in the military. Baz on delta was in the marines. So it kinda overlaps somewhat.
Yeah Nutter may screw around a lot, but when the mission starts he's damn good. Delta is still my favorite team, more so now that Teeple is gone and Baz is in charge. I hope they win, it will be tough with Alpha out there.
