US special operations forces are becoming an increasingly important and flexible tool in enacting US foreign policy.
I was talking to a Vietnam veteran earlier; he told me that he liked to take point, so no one gets hurt. We were talking about everyday things when he made the point man reference, but I knew it was rooted in experience.
This picture of Soldiers on patrol in Vietnam is in honor of those who took point. And to those that followed.
Thanks, “point man.” You rock!
