forgot i was in Q&A... 🙃
Thank you Alex!
So there may have just been a handful of us in here today, but i still had a blast! Huge thanks to Michelle and Micky for making this hour fly by! I'm off to go start dinner, because being a crappy cook is no excuse not to try on mother's day. We'll be doing these Q&As every sunday, so make sure to come back next week to talk to Danielle! Thanks again!
And i guess the creepy spooks like James, T.O. and Danielle are cool too... but I've never been too trusting of the secret squirrel types... (just kidding about them!.... but not the rest of the spook community. You can't be mad at someone that lies for a living for lying to you)
You raise a great point about the way the site has expanded in the past few years. I'm most certainly not a special operation's veteran - SOFREP scooped me up as I finished graduate school and was working as a site manager and technical writer for a big website I'm not allowed to name (because of their contract, not SOFREP). There have been a lot of changes, some planned, some were the result of adjusting fire on the fly, but I really like the way SOFREP has grown to envelope intelligence professionals, culture, science, and foreign policy analysis. Like you said, conventional forces and diplomacy both play a significant role in shaping the work special operations units do, and I love having the opportunity to provide what I can to the overall narrative. I still come to SOFREP to hear from legitimate HEROES like George Hand, Jack Murphy, Luke Ryan, and the like - guys that accomplished things I was only reading about while I was in uniform. I'm honored to be counted among folks like them in my work.
