Delta Force CSM Tom Satterly (left) is shown here immediately after the infamous Mogadishu mile with other Delta operators and members of the 10th Mountain Division. It was a scene immortalized in the film Black Hawk Down.
After his time in the service, Tom sat down with SOFREP to talk about his time in the service and the issues that nearly led to him taking his own life. He wrote about that in his book, All Secure: A Special Operations Soldier’s Fight to Survive on the Battlefield and the Homefront.
He also, with his wife Jen, talks about their journey on SOFREP Radio.
A Close Call With Mortality
Tom spent 25 years in the Army, 21 of them in Delta Force. That’s a long time being a top-level operator. He’d seen more than his share of death and anguish. He had lost close friends.
