Operators Operating Operationally.

This is a military blog that features pictures and videos of weapons, vehicles, and the individuals who use them on a daily basis.
I find a portion of these pictures from military_armies. Thanks to him for letting me use so many of his great photos.
Enjoy.

Operating in the ruff.
Delta guy posing with his war hound. A curious note is that the dog is possibly deceased, as there have been few instances as photos of Operators with their war pups faces also censored.

Some SAD Folks.
The CIA’s Special Activities Division, also known as “SAD”, is part of the American National Clandestine Service, and is split into two separate groups, SOG (Special operations group) and PAG (Political Action Group). The two work hand-in-hand to project American influence into other political states. SOG works to collect intelligence through ways that the US government does not wish to be associated directly to, while PAG works to knock a political state’s stability off of it’s feet through psychological warfare and economical warfare.

Revolting.

Hungarian Partisans and otherwise resistance members during the Hungarian Revolution, capturing and destroying new “State of the art” Russian tanks and equipment and raising their flag in rejection of Soviet Doctrine. However, Hungary would later be totally invaded just a month later, and the revolution being forcibly ended just a few months later. Over 2,500 Hungarians (Most of which were Hungarian Government soldiers who had fought originally to reinforce communist Presence in Russia) had died in the conflict, and 700 Russians were killed as well.

Forced Recon.
The USMC’s Force Recon Specialists are the USMC’s own SOC unit. Typically, force recon teams are not used to gather information passively. Instead, they are typically known to be used in “Direct Action” roles, clearing compounds and raiding convoys to extract a VIP or a target of strategic interest. Like most SOC units, they are trained extensively before each mission in order to reduce fatalities. However, a very unique aspect of the Force Recon teams is that they are to stay within the “fan” of naval artillery fire, using it only when completely necessary to ensure their escape.
