    Very well-written and cited. Almost too deep for this grunt! Semper Fi MoDog

    I read "No Easy Day" some time back and i didn't quite get one thing written there.   How do operators jump between time operating and being an instructor at green team? "Mark Owen" said that he's team leader time was almost up. I mean what would he do after his instructor time was up? Is their time at the command cut up somehow or how does it work? Do things over at Delta work the same way?   Great article.

    @Chris Martin @jct95 Gotcha' I'll look around...from what I read Lt. commanders "command" 3 troops - 18 shooters. If you don't kind me asking, do you know if Officers can become snipers at DevGru? Thanks.

    @Frosty Thanks man -- I appreciate it.

    @jct95 I'd have to do a bit of digging. I'm pretty sure this info is out there (in part) but I can't place it off the top of my head.
