Managing editor Jack Murphy (former 75th Ranger and Green Beret) and I work very hard at keeping SOFREP apolitical for a reason. We feel that it helps maintain a balanced viewpoint and keep the site’s integrity with regards to representing the Special Operations community. This is very hard, trust me.

I’ve had a ton of emails and comments via social media lately about my best friend Glen, and his encounter with Mitt Romney.  I was there with him that night we both met Mitt Romney. We were at our friend Dee and Susan’s Christmas party, and I was standing side-by-side with Glen during the engagement.  So you’re getting it from the horse’s mouth.

Two things Glen would want in this situation, in my opinion:

1. That both political parties not latch onto his and Ty’s heroic deaths for personal political gain.
