Operation Gothic Serpent
« on: October 03, 2012, 07:57:10 PM »
A big salute and remembrance to all of the soldiers and airmen (Rangers, Delta, and the 160th SOAR) who fought and gave their lives during Operation Gothic Serpent in 1993, better known as The Battle of Mogadishu or Black Hawk Down on October 3-4th.

If you wish for peace, prepare for war.

A battalion commander of the 23rd Regiment 2nd Infantry Division reported during Operation Cobra, the long awaited breakout from St. Lo (July 1944):

"I have no water, I have no chow, I have no batteries for my radio, I have no communication. My men are dead dog tired. I repeat, my men are dead dog tired. I have been given an order to attack. I am about to comply with this order. End of message."

Arizona  Arm yourself because no one else here will save you.  The odds will betray you, and I will replace you...

Crap, added the wrong pic. Stupid smartphone and small screen. Thanks for calling me out. Did NOT want to put the actors in.
