Good Morning

I am a former MP on active duty from '80 - '86 with duty stations in Heidelberg, Ft. Stewart (detached to Orlando), Camp Stanley Korea and Ft. Leavenworth. I have been in civilian law enforcement for 15 yrs. I was told about this site by a couple of co-workers and I am very glad they did.

My name is Gary Williams. I am the author of the soon to be released book SEAL of Honor: Operation Red Wings and the Life of LT Michael Murphy, USN. LT Michael Murphy was awarded the Medal of Honor on October 22, 2007 by then CINC George W. Bush for his action on 28 June 2005 in the Hindu Kush in Afghanistan. LT Murphy is the first Navy SEAL to receive the MOH since the Vietnam War, the first SEAL to receive the MOH posthumously, and the first to receive it for service in Afghanistan.

I am the oldest son of a decorated Korean War veteran but have no personal military experience of my own, although my parents raised us with a near reverent respect for those who wear the cloth of our nation. That respect has not diminished with time. I am a 30-year employee with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections and live just north of Cincinnati. I hold a Master's Degree in Public Administration and serve as an Adjunct Professor at Sinclair Community College in Dayton.

I have spent the past 18 months trying to capture the essence of the life of LT Michael Murphy and his selfless service to our country. SEAL of Honor is being published by the U.S. Naval Institute Press with an anticipated release date of 6 May 2010 at the Navy SEAL Warrior Fund dinner aboard the USS Intrepid in NYC. I would be honored to keep everyone up to date as this project continues. God's speed to all who go into harm's way to defend this great nation and that for which she stands.

You may contact me at glw3555@aol.com. It would be an honor to hear from you.

Hello

Thank you for allowing me to join. I am a former USMC 0311 class of 1984 Parris Island. I also am a retired law enforcement officer whos last assignment was as a supervisor at the FBI. I then went as a civilian to Iraq and qorked counter-insurgeny and counter IED under the JIEDDO and had the honor to work with Navy operators as well as Army operators. In the past i have taught lock picking to some of them in New Orleans. I was happy to have run into some familiar faces in Iraq.

I currently am in Israel working homeland security and training issues here. Please feel free to email me at
jeffreyhochman@aol.com

if you are in Israel. I also travel to the USA to train DoJ and other military and law enforcement on the lessons I have learned over 22 years. I am no expert but in 44 years i have made mistakes and learned from them.

Thanks for allowing me to join the SOCNET group. I served in the US Navy for 11 years (1990-2001). My last tour was with HCS-5 (CSAR/SPECWAR) as a Rescue Swimmer and TAC II crewman ('98-'01). We had the opportunity and honor to work along side the left coast SEAL Teams. I just finished reading Steve "Moose" Robinson's book, and would enjoy helping you guys vette out the wannabes.

Thanks again for letting me in the playground.

Thank you for having me...

I was never a member of the special forces, I was just a regular big army infantryman.

We don't often get to say thank you to those whose influence changed our lives, sometimes those individuals don't even know they have changed someone's life. The second commanding officer I served under was a Ranger Qualified Airborne Infantry Officer. I learned a great deal about what being a man really means thanks to him, his ability to instruct and lead by example changed me from just another dumbass kid into a man who has become an asset to his community.

If this man is indicative of the individuals who serve this great nation as members of the Special Forces (and I know he is) then our country is indeed blessed to have you gentlemen serving for us. With all my heart thank you for your service and thank you for allowing me to join this site and read your words.

Thanks again!
Fred

Hello all,

New to the site, hoping to learn, share, and catch up with a few people. Was Aco Weapons 3/75 1988-90, ODA 345 + 346 '93-96, then 2/3 CE '96-97. Returned to college afterwards, now a "forest ranger" (no, really). Already on AR.com as "Lunch"; using "Big Money" here in hopes that others who would know me by that nickname will recognize me.

Hello Gentlemen and Ladies,

I am new to the site. I feel I am among heroes here and I may not belong.
I worked on the job as a sheriff's deputy for 30 years. I am retired now. I was one of the first female officers in South Florida.

I certainly have not done anything like the posters here. God bless you all.

Just wanted to say that.

The fact that you served your community for 30 years makes you a hero in many people's eyes.

Not all heroes are in the military- firefighters and police personnel put their lives on the line EVERY SINGLE DAY for the mostly ungrateful public.

Welcome!

And in accordance with our traditions- are you hot?

I'm a Viet-Nam veteran. SSG, Co. A, 1/5 Mech Inf, 25th Inf Div, 1970-71. Not a spec ops guy, but a proud veteran. I flunked out of college in the 60s and got drafted in the US Army, and was happy to serve. I performed well, and was offered NCO Academy at Ft. Benning, to further prepare me for my RVN tour. I took it, graduated top in my class, and earned E-6 with about 8 months in service. I went to the Nam as a 20 year old 11B40, did my combat tour, and got all my guys home. I'm here because a guy I know, a SEAL, told me he was going to use this web site to "check me out," because I took a different position than he in a political discussion. He thought I'd be intimidated, and implied that my service wasn't what I said it was. He's wrong, so here I am. I'm here to check myself out, and to enjoy the resources of this site.
