Reflections of a warrior- Frank Miller

I gotta say, this is my favorite book. I left a copy for the team when I left, I told them to make sure all the new guys read it as the new guys that came in havenít heard or learned about many of our MOH recipients.

Lastly, how on earth is there not a movie about MACV-SOG?? You could literally just copy Millers battles.

I hope they don't make any movies about MACV/SOG. Hollywood will just screw it up. We already know in the SF community that the cast and crew won't listen to the real deals when it comes story continuity.

Sometime just in the last week I was driving through one of our little towns behind an SUV with "MACV SOG" as its license plate and had to wonder how many men from that era are still with us.

I know a whole mess of MACV-SOG troopers that are still very much alive and kickin'...they ain't getting any younger, but they are still around.

Hard to kill then, hard to kill now. Good to hear.
I've yet to read CSM Miller's book but will be putting it in the rotation.
