Dying is the easy part. Living with the repercussions is the problem.

Agree to disagree…




Speaking of Gingers...

Pete Meijer is a former republican U.S. Representative from the Grand Rapids area. He was in the news here last week for withdrawing from the U.S. Senate race. Politics aside, I did have to laugh when I was reading one of the articles about the race and saw that the name of his Super PAC was "Ginger PAC". 😅

Kind of hard to vote for someone that has no soul.

Random question for those who might know- is Special Forces a fairly wide designation in the Army, or is it very specific?

I'm asking because the security guard at the base was a smoking hot blonde with a big "Special Forces" patch across the front of her body armor vest thing. I just want to know how easily she could kill me...

I've heard it used both broadly and specifically. Specifically, Special Forces is a designation for the Green Berets.

At its broadest (from a US point of view), it means anyone in the US Special Forces command. While not everyone in that group is action movie hero badass, it includes Delta Force, Rangers, SEALs, Air Force pararescue and Tactical Air Control Party, and Marine Recon.

She could just be someone in a support group or the like that is under SOCOM. She could just be lying about her patch. Or she could be someone who completed one of the training programs, like Air Force Combat Controllers, which are 2 years with a >90% washout rate.

The point is, you should shoot your shot. You'll be fine.

It would be very unlikely to find Green Berets securing a base, they would be in some jungle advising local forces where they speak the language fluently and know the local politics and culture expertly.

"Special forces" spans a really large area and is not limited to the tier 1 forces, so the entire Navy Seals unit (not just Team 6) and the 75th Ranger Regiment (not Rangers) are special forces. There are 70k personnel under SOCOM command so it's likely that she is a special forces member, but likely not a tier 1 operator if she was guarding the base.

She was on duty, in full uniform, and on base. That's a level of blatant disregard for consequences that makes her even hotter.

Yeah, like she's probably just a standard MP assigned to one of the bases a special forces unit operates out of (like Ft Campbell). Follow a certain potentially felon POTUS and grab her by the *****.

Like cross said, she's probably not even tier 1.
