Embedded With Special Forces in Afghanistan | Part 2

    Coffee or Die Magazine’s Marty Skovlund Jr. was given exclusive access to embed with a Special Forces team in the mountains of Afghanistan, and accompany them on a combat mission into ISIS-held territory.

    These Green Beret’s fit the common tropes associated with Special Forces: beards, long-ish hair, and relaxed attitudes along with a few sleeve tattoos sprinkled in for good measure.

    Although they sport ball caps and Glocks in lieu of cowboy hats and six-shooters, they are frontiersman all the same — charged with taming the Mohmand Valley.

    The team operates out of COP Blackfish, an isolated outpost in the Mohmand Valley and only a short walk from where the controversial “MOAB” was dropped last year.

    100 percent badasses. I was a little kid and had a Brit SAS Operator come to the USA and I had little adventures with him. He's dead, died in service. He was a badass 100 percent, he was the shortest SAS Operator in the Regiment. Now that I'm grown it's humbling thinking of it. I miss him and wanna give him a hug, but no matter how big my head gets from any accomplishment I'm a little kid compared to him. He's the only guy who never inflicted damage to me as a kid, I'd see him coming and haul ass out the door running to him just because he was just cool. He carried me thru a gunfight and got shot in the head. I wanted to be like him. I wanted to move to Britain and be SAS. I wanted to get shot in the head like him. I did too. A Holy Spirit lined it up and kept hanging around. A cop shot me right between the eyes. I've got the scar.

        I didn't expect the special forces to be dressed so "chill" they were wearing t shirts and stuff rather than full combat gear.

          I hope you guys are gearing to fight for your country against the communist traitors. Remember your oath of defending the nation from all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC. The demorats are the enemy.

                                      Did you not hear Obama in the war in 2010 there's no more war in Afghanistan why you guys pretending there's a war in Afghanistan this was published in 2018 or 19 it seems odd that you guys are still be going after caliban's according to the government and Obama the war is over and the Taliban double exists in there on to Isis and the other idiots and Syria

Today it's mostly just basic stuff they do all the high level stuff goes to JSOC. Nothing in this video couldn't be done by a regular infantry team. SF is basically being used for everything now.
