docwally Like how our guys run a 5k or negotiate an obstacle course? I don't think its an issue. We send guys to this competitions to build rapport.
That's nice..They're no JTF2 though.
Robertkyle I loved the original Red Dawn. Hollywood always tries to duplicate the original excellent movies and TV programs. Look what they did with the "A Team". What a horrible movie!!!
