I think the point that most of you on outside looking in are missing is that Team Guys are smart and innovative. I hope you guys follow me on this without having to post it in plain language.

I would expect reciprocation with me, if I ever did it.

Mmmmm, OK. But right before the punch in the face, will you autograph my copy of your book? You know, in case you become famous, and shit....

I am assuming you are making the request of your SEAL Brother-in-Arms.

Otherwise, I will feel the need to 'outsource' this task due to self preservation concern and the desire to avoid dental repairs.

When/if I go full-retard and write a book, I will post my location in the clear for all area SOCNETers to come and straighten me out.

I feel that he should have waited to print this book until after he was out, even if all authorities gave him a go.

The individuals that were supposed to review/clear the book sat on it for almost a year. He pulled the trigger anyway and paid the man. Having seen the PG13s and all his discharge paperwork, its clear to me NSW was/is acting outside the law to get rid of a problem.

Cuz' when his EAOS rolls around TReam guys may not be the flavor of the month anymore and he might not get his 5 minutes of fame for writing a mediocre memoir and opinions with no credibility behind it other than that of being a SEAL.

Yup.


Why it's important to make yourself famous by pimping out your Trident is beyond my understanding in the first place, so my sympathy meter is pegged at zero.

Excellent summation.

Looks like Higbie talked himself out of another job.

So basically he was forced to resign for stating his politics, beliefs and viewpoints many years ago ( most of which he was spot on, and being the truth). The part about free shooting of people crossing the border was over the top though and the part where he did go over board.

Anderson Cooper does a great job there keeping his personal agenda out of the commentary.

The scary part after listening to all this statements is that I agree with almost everything he says.

He makes some good points, but some of the stuff he says is a little out there.

I see he was publicly referring to countries as shitholes before it was cool.
