Television reporter Alex Quade has covered US Special Operations Forces numerous times in Iraq and Afghanistan and she earned the trust and respect of the troops who are normally distrustful of reporters and the media in general.

Now she is telling their story with a documentary “Danger Close” that will premiere on Thursday night in Tampa Bay. The title Danger Close denotes a military term where friendly troops are in such close proximity to the enemy, they are in danger of suffering from artillery, mortars or air attacks.

Quade has compiled footage on the ground with Special Operations Forces and will show their families back home and the American public what dangers the troops face on a daily basis fighting in faraway lands.

This is the closest Americans will get to go along with elite special forces troops and other amazing service members,” said Quade, 48. “This is as ‘danger close’ to war as you will possibly get and it shows the love in this brotherhood and for each other.”
