CJTF-82 at it again

Counter-Insurgency - so easy a caveman could do it. Okay, maybe not that easy. Admittedly, Counter-insurgency operations are inherently complex and place great demands on everyone involved. Nation Building is equally difficult – the complexities even greater when insurgents are allowed to meet political and ideological objectives. Historically U.S. Forces have supported insurgents in toppling oppressive governments, and given the historical success of insurgencies,
the task of executing a well-planned counter-insurgency strategy takes on greater significance.

Finish the rest the SGM has a great well written article that should be required reading by every politician in the coalition

SGM Regan,
Nice work here sir, very helpful reading for us lacky civilians you are keeping safe and free back at home.

As for you sir (yea, I know you work for a living), a finer soldier the Army will not find. You and I met in NOLA, just after Katrina, I was the nutty one with the Zodiac boats, man we had a good time doing good.

I will never forget the sprit of the 82nd, one week in and its stuck in my blood - All The Way!

One more thing, I'm now at Northrop Grumman IT.

We have a monster IT deal with the 7th Army Civil Support Command (Germany, Italy). If you or anyone is interested, have them drop me a line.
Curtis, please drop me a line either way:
Michael Walker

Nice bonus' offered for the 7th gig!
