    Do you feel that the names of the whole Navy SEAL Team 6 should be revealed?

    I forgot the poll and no way to change it now. Sorry
    I'd thought about this not long after the announcement and the answer is no... not now, not ever. These folks lives would be changed for the worse, and if revealed later, their graves would be desecrated.

    Let them live in peace knowing they did humanity a tremendous service with their professionalism, courage and bravery. Thanks guys... I think you know how America feels about you. You're the best of the best.

    I state this based on a story I remember about an American hero, and their family could not reveal his burial plot or something of that kind. Unfortunately the details escape me at the moment (pissed off icon).

    Now, should they reveal this info themselves, and are permitted to, that is another story, but I can't see any of them doing it.

    Can you imagine one of the SEALS coming home after having taken out Osama... Hi Honey, how were your maneuvers? Oh, OK... we were in NC having war games, training a bunch of grunts (smiles and whistles as he heads to the fridge for a beer).

    They already released 'the name'...SEAL Team 6. That is all that is ever needed or should be given.

    In basic, we were told that the 82nd (our contracts were MOS 11x 82nd Abn) was in hand-to-hand with Saddam's elite (an inspiring lie, and I was very happy with myself not to feel any fear upon the announcement).

    In reality, the air war started when I was in basic (delayed enlistment from Aug had me at Benning in Dec). The ground war started and ended while I was in jump shool. I arrived at my unit ~1 month after they got home. everyone had a CIB and a patch o their right shoulder. They all had 1000s in the bank, and we newbs (we still said cherry in those days) were not invited. Eventually, I earned the respect I needed and made E4 in ~26 months from dec. I had the choice to go to ranger school or take my ~60k scholarship (GI Bill/College Fund). I had spent ~3 years in the unit peacetime and there was no likely combat anytime soon. I had not joined for training and so I took the college money. I'm finishing my PhD now, ecology, agriculture, rural Kenya (I'm in 'suburbs' at the moment for electricity for computer modeling).

    We made the deal after we got to the 82nd and the war was over (despite requests, we were assigned to different brigades, he 325 me 505) and it appeared only small-scale conflicts were likely. It could be my, his or the third brigade on DRF 1-3 during any given event. During blackhawk down, my unit was on DRF1. We unloaded uniforms, etc, at green ramp and loaded only live ammo. The jump was cancelled (rumor is after a pentagon go) and we didn't get on the birds. I wish we had.

    18 hours, anywhere in the world, fight on arrival.


    I missed combat. I tried. I would have been the first reinforcements to the 82nd in Gulf 1 and I was very close to Somalia. I spent a night talking after some ambush training in Arkansas with a ranger who was in Somalia.


    Combat does not necessarily make one a better soldier (experience notwithstanding potential). Only some get a chance to shine. It's just luck. We all train and pray for war.


    Thats all well and good, but it doesn't answer my question.

    No. Secrecy is best.

    Nah, let him enjoy his life as a private hero. Salman Rushdie had a hit put on him, and that was just for using Mohammad in a book.

    I'm sure his parents named him when he was born.

    Did you report her as a terrorist sympathizer?

    The only time I saw a guy get slapped in a bar was my buddy trying to pick up this girl, she slapped him and he laughed at her and made some insult. She then threw her drink in his face and he responded by throwing his drink in her face. It was like out of some idiotic comedy... almost turned into a brawl and since we were two against five or more, we left. Good times...
