Marines and Navy Seals, all in a single blog post

Want to be a biker and shoot people for a living, before high-tailing it to the next town?

The job exits.

Marine Special Operators are now using motorcycles to hunt down Taliban members in Afghanistan. The article discusses the advantages of riding motorcycles, which is something I’ve never considered. (Story here.)

And while we’re on the subject of warriors and tough guys, you need to check out the video below. In it, Navy Seals recount a hilarious, almost unbelievable story of a drunken brawl that happens in the middle of a combat zone in Afghanistan.

Your first thought when you watch this — if you’re  a civilian — is that it can’t possible be true. Wrong. Things like this happen far more than you’d ever think. (And warning, video contains profanity. No shit, huh? They’re Navy Seals, people, not Scout leaders.)

P.S. If you enjoy fast-paced books, you just might like my works. “Sold Out” tracks the life of a legendary Marine Sniper after a CIA unit decides to kill him for reasons of national security. “Little Man, and the Dixon County War” tells the uphill fight a young deputy faces after surviving three years of war only to find himself in the sights of a mighty cattle baron. And “Soldier On,” a short novel, follows the lives of several German soldiers in a depleted infantry company trying to make it through the final, miserable months of World War II.

  1. Biker Snipers. What will they think of next. I spent a week at Coronado in San Diego watching SEALs train, touring the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan and generally marveling at all that our military is able to do. Amazing.
