Lone Survivor
 
Went and saw it last night. Fuck. If you ever want to feel like a giant fucking pussy, just watch that movie. Everything you've ever complained about and any injury you've ever had will suddenly seem comically trivial.

That movie really is crazy! I have so much respect for the men and women that fight for our country. Especially after watching that. Check out the interview with Marcus if you haven't seen it already.

The guys who took him in deserve a ton of respect as well. Put their lives on the line for a stranger from across the world.

I knew about special forces but not a whole lot. But my buddy who joined what was then the Border Patrol is all big on the military and SF's. Watching black hawk down he pointed out little things, like how the Delta boys had regular hair, different helmets, and kind of did their own thing vs the Rangers, who on their own are already bad ass. And how Ewan McGregor's character went from making coffee for the Rangers to running alongside Delta. Eric Bana's character was the baddest of the badass military characters I've seen in almost any movie. Seemingly detached but then goes in and kicks ass, makes a small plate of food to go back in and kick some more ass.

Pretty cool shit. Made me a big fan of the Delta Force, part of the secretive Special Mission Units of the JSOC (along with DEVGRU or Seal Team 6, and Air Force 24th Special Tactics Squadron).

I can't wait to see Lone Survivor.
