What you’re about to see is a rare glimpse into a community relatively unknown prior to the terror attacks of September 11th, 2001. What you are about to see is candid, no BS, conversation between two friends over a few beers and good whisky.
The participants in telling their stories are doing their best to recollect things as truthfully and accurately as possible however, it’s inevitable some mistakes will be made due to time passed or the fog of combat, these errors are entirely on us. Additionally, some names and locations have been edited out, this was done to protect the privacy of the individuals and operations discussed.
There are those who believe the Special Operations community, and Navy SEALs should continue to live in the shadows. The world has changed, and the makers of this show believe that the stories and sacrifice of the men and women who put their lives at risk to safeguard America, should continue to be told. And who better to tell these stories, than the people who actually did the work. Enjoy the show, and remember…”The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday”- US Navy SEALs.
