Master Sergeant (R) George E. “Chik” Hand IV, better known as Geo to the public and as His Excellency or Ice-G to the editorial team.

Where to begin? Green Beret, Delta Force operator, Soldier.

Geo served for 10 years with the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta, colloquially known as Delta Force. As the U.S. Army’s premier counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and direct action Special Mission Unit (SMU), Delta Force has been at the tip of the spear of the American military ever since the Iranian hostage crisis in 1979. To serve there, a man has to climb physical and mental mountains; to remain there, a man has to show remarkable consistency and professionalism.
