The shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Although sometimes that path is obstructed with state-of-the-art, multilayered security systems that are specifically designed and overlapped against all threats. This was where our point laid, and our pipedream; the Delta Force compound. One corner of the perimeter of the compound lay just off of the road traveled while heading to the ranges of Fort Bragg. The compound was easily identifiable thanks to all of the exotic sports cars, which were frequently and openly parked near the gate of the compound at the time.
We passed our target no less than once a week as we rucked out to the various training areas and ranges on Fort Bragg. While we moved, we took in the perimeter and gazed into the distance, across the reaches of the Delta Force compound – in search the elusive flagpole, which was rumored to lay at the dead-center of the compound. Yet to no avail, since the compound was well secured and concealed from the road.
