Before There Were SEALs: Underwater Demolition Teams!

One of the things I love about the SOFREP community is that we get to archive historical content. There’s so much in the way of rich history that doesn’t get captured in the few (relatively speaking) books that do get written. This is especially true when it comes to Wars like WWI, WWII, and Korea.  Me and the guys look forward to digging in deep and also adding these interviews to SOFREP TV which we will re-launch this November with Heroes of the Special Operations. Enjoy this interview I dug up and thanks for all your support.

    @Recon6 6, Roger that on the old suck meter being pegged at times. From what I hear there's only one alternative to getting older...and neither of us are ready for that option just yet. I've become a big Apple fan. User friendly and a pleasure to use. I've got a 21 inch iMac desktop now and looking at a 15" Macbook Pro with Retina Display for travel. More expensive than the PC Windows operating systems but definitely worth it in my opinion. Pre holiday sales may bring cheaper prices, but for now here's a link to some of the best prices I've found;   http://appleinsider.com/mac_price_guide/

    @CJCJ  Thanks CJ, I finally threw the thing!!  Got back briefly and bang, gone again. I think AW would say my 'Barnes' is emerging, lol, but damn it is frustrating for a guy that used a #2 pencil growing up.  Plz let me know about your upgrade, I need help for sure.  All my kids and grandkids live elsewhere so I get no new Intel till they come visit, then they make fun of me for being so 'behind the times'!!  Gettin old can sometimes suck, but I'm not complaining.....6

    @Recon6  6, I think SOFREP is overwhelming the ability of Livefyre to keep up. Hitting the refresh button sometimes helps to get things going for me. Might be worth trying the next time things here seem to be unresponsive for you. I'm looking at a hardware upgrade soon and will be interested to see if it makes any difference here.
