Delta Operators in Somalia, 1993. Large Album Inside

Share this on Facebook download .zip with all pictures

Great stuff. My dad served in Somalia in the USAF. At the time of his deployment, my mum was pregnant with me. Idk what his experiences with Delta Force were (if any) but he said that the Rangers were some of the most unprofessional units he encountered. This included Rangers barging into the control tower and irresponsibly handling their weapons. His unit even went so far as to setting up a perimeter specifically against the Rangers because they were stealing the Air Force’s stuff.

Even though he was Air Force, he ended up being in the fighting throughout his deployment. Thusly, Black Hawk Down is somewhat of a hard movie for me to watch because it makes me think about what if he had been killed. I remember him telling me about the Ranger (alphabet?) who got shot with an RPG that didn’t explode. They didn’t have him in a sick bay, they had him in a bunker far off and the explosive ordinance removal teams had to cut it out of him with a knife. I wish more people remembered the veterans of America’s forgotten wars, especially the ones that were humanitarian missions.

*Disclaimer* Obviously, my dad’s experiences with the Rangers in Somalia do not reflect every single soldier in that unit. More likely a case of a few bad eggs ruining the whole batch. Even so, I mean no disrespect towards the Rangers and want to clarify that I am merely parroting one veteran’s experiences in Somalia.
