Back to work for may Americans today, while our troops in Afghanistan didn’t get a break. God bless them.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) The Marines started a Special Ops unit called MARSOC. They have struggled to keep up with the huge budget and years of experience of the Army Rangers and Army Green Berets. This story states MARSOC Marines will be involved in drug issues, tracking drug runners, etc. Why isn’t the DEA, drug enforcement doing this as we already use our tax dollars to pay for the DEA? Why doesn’t the Marine Corps end this experiment and go back to their strengths of Recon, Scout Sniper, etc.? I don’t know. I am just asking. I love our Marine Raiders and just started reading another book about them, “Carlson’s Raid,”  Link:
