SOFREP crew, I’m back as your EIC after taking a much needed year off in 2022 to recharge my comms batteries.

A strange series of events led me back here (I’ll speak on this the next SOFREP+ front line video meeting) but it feels like I’m back, sitting in my favorite team room sofa, and it’s a great to re-engage with the readership, some old, some new.

One of the decisions I’ve made in 2023 is to go 100% SOFREP as a byline. All our articles will feature SOFREP as the author with the exception of the occasional guest post.

“What the Hell is Brandon doing?”, some of you may be saying.
