I still remember the day before me and my buddy "Ripper" went to Ranger School in 2000. I was 32 and Ripper was 34. SgtMaj Naughton came to me and Ripper and says, "The Old Man wants to talk to you guys before you go." We roll into Col Coates' office and he says, "I know you two are ready to go and kick ass, just remember my policy. Ranger Tab or body bag." LOL

Fantastic Marine Officer and the best Skipper a rifle company of misfits could have hoped for. Congrats, Sir!

Induction date is 22 April. Two Marines, 2 Army (1 ARSOF and 1 JSOC), 1 Air Force. For some reason, no one from NSW.

The second Marine is Master Sgt. John S. Moser. Understand he received the Navy Cross as a MARSOC team leader in Afghanstan.

Correct John Mosser was awarded the Navy Cross for his distinguished actions while serving with a MarSoc team. He received it when he was back in 3d Recon Bn.

Attended the ceremony yesterday in the SOCOM Wargame Center. Simply awesome. GEN Thomas presided with a room full of who's who SOF GO/FOs and legends of the community. I gave Konrad Trautman my seat and had to stand with the full room. Had a chance to catch up with Bob from our years at U South Carolina NROTC days in the mid '70's afterwards. Many prior Det ONE guys were there to see Bob. Not sure how he does it, but he looks ageless - no gray hair, young wife and young kids.
