War Stories: Navy SEAL FNG

Wayne is a good friend of mine, and has a very accomplished track record in the SEAL community and now as an Executive in the Defense industry.  We were both talking and swapping sea stories when Wayne said, “we should do a weekly series where guys can share there experiences with the SOFREP community”.

So I give you”No Shit There I Was”, our new weekly column on SOFREP. We’ll share our stories, but we also want to hear yours. If you are active, reserve or a veteran, then please share your war stories with us via the Comms Check Portal. Just don’t forget to change the names to protect the guilty…

    @Wayno165  Hey Wayne, I enjoyed your story. It really hit a soft spot with me because of your arrival to Team 4 after OJC. I had the Damn Greatest opportunity to meet one of the young men that didn't make it at the airfield. After all of these years, I would like to talk to anyone that knew him. I know you wouldn't have because of the timeframe. You would have had to been right behind him at BUD/S. I have more but will wait for your response.
