While covering a story recently, I had the opportunity to tour some facilities with a number of current and former elite operators hailing from various military branches and government agencies.  Although these men may have different abbreviations on their identification cards, the community of people with unique skill sets and levels of expertise is small, and it isn’t uncommon to find that most of them know each other.  Even within this community, Delta Force is held in extremely high regard, as I came to find when I mentioned my fellow contributor, George Hand, in conversation.

“You know George Hand?” One of them asked with a raised eyebrow.

“Yeah, he’s a great guy. Have you worked with him?” I responded.

Geo Flying
The legendary Geo Hand flying through the air with the greatest of ease.

“No… I just know of him… reputation only.” He answered.  I knew our beloved Geo was a badass, but even I didn’t know he was held in such high regard among other badasses.
