    He's been in the news quite a lot lately. He was JSOC Commander during the UBL raid, now he's SOCOM Commander. Suprised you haven't heard of him.

    I agree with you there. It gave them a distinctive look. Ranger Green was kind of their thing.

    1st Rule, always look cool. 2nd Rule, always know where you are. 3rd Rule, if you get lost, continue to look cool.

    Admiral McRaven: Commanded JSOC, currently commands SOCOM and I do believe at one time was a member of DEVGRU.

    I wonder how the US government's decision to sign authority of night raids over to the Afghans is going to affect how the 75th operates, seeing as how night raids are pretty much their bread and butter. I wonder if it will just be a situation of the US military having to give credit for enemy captured/killed to the afghan army, or if SOF units like the 75th will actually be hindered in what they can and cant do over there.

    I highly doubt the Afghans are going on these raids alone without US assistance. Also, its ridiculous to even fathom that they'll face a shortage of raids just because the Afghans are involved. BrianT and some of our other more knowledgeable members can give a better answer than I though.
