In today’s pic, we see US Special Forces soldiers jump out of a perfectly good CH-47 Chinook helicopter and into a freezing cold river, much like you might have taken that tentative jump off of the high dive at the local community pool when you were a kid…but with automatic weapons.  The guys in the water and giving the thumbs up…they are good to go. The guys on the way down are protecting their pretty faces from getting smacked up when they impact the water.

SOFREP’s own Geo Hand wrote a whole piece on riverine operations in Guyana, and you can read that here. And yes, I lifted the title directly from his piece; sue me.

And while we’re talking about Geo, show him some love and check out his website and buy his books. Go on, do it now. We can wait.

Got it?  Let’s drive on.
