GROM Visit & Czerwony Krąg: Post #1

As promised I wanted to update you guys during my trip.

I was connecting through O’Hare to Warsaw on my way to do some Red Circle (Czerwony krąg)  and briefly saw the Boston news. Tragic that this happened, and my thoughts are with the victims in Boston. I feel connected to Boston through my best friend Glen Doherty who many of you know died in Benghazi, Libya.

I was greeted by a couple of the GROM guys at the airport (I didn’t know they were GROM), and of course DRAGO had them pull me aside, and tell me, “Sir, we have a big problem…”, and then they started cracking up.

Read the rest in the SOFREP Team Room here.

    BrandonWebb JackMurphyRGR Hey Brandon, What would the "tagline" of the series be? Just wondering what sort of things you will be covering about GROM. I'm a Canadian and Polish background so this is extremely intriguing to me! Thanks

    chrishutch13Intro translated:  Friendship and brotherhood in arms - what do these words mean to be seen, heard and felt at the meeting of two American elite SEAL commando of soldiers no less elite GROM. Drago - which already have in Poland and the world have presented and Brandon - which in turn is known that trains all snipers, met in Warsaw with the Polish brothers in arms. I mentioned that when they fought side by side in Iraq, did not see the differences between gromowcem and Seals.

    chrishutch13 Chris this is fantastic footage and thanks for sharing.  A little interview from BW would have been neat but, at least we got to see him.  Wish you could translate it but, I got a lot just looking at their faces and listening.  Great group of guys!

    Saw you on the news over here, Brandon: http://www.tvn24.pl/polska-i-swiat,33,m/grom-ramie-w-ramie-z-seals,319868.html#autoplay. I thought they were going to get you to speak a little po polsku.
