they should build statues of Randy Shugart, and Gary Gordon on the Capital steps. Great stories of men going above and beyond the norm everyday in the military and hollywood makes political garbage about military being victims, and worship at the feet of people that pretend to be badass for a living.

buddy of mine was an armor captain during the Iraq invasion when a couple delta guys took over an operation where they thought they had someone in the deck of cards.

He said everyone looked and smelled, but the delta guys smelled like soap and looked like surfers. They had stayed in a hotel inside the city that they were about to invade.

The book made it sound like this guy was incompetent, and seemed to let his ego get in the way.

 

I worked with a guy the was in the stadium and went out to get them in the morning. He said that it was a lot more FUBAR'ed than it shows in the movie. We talked about right after the movie came out and I can't remeber the examples that he gave.

Don't know the specifics, but I think it's around 100 US casualities compared to 3,000 Somali casualties.

those numbers may be inflated, that all I remember off of the top of my head.

18 US dead...

the Somalis say only 300 of them got killed (lol @ that)
estimates from the field put it at somewhere between 1500-3000
