Hallowed Ground magazine Spring 2021

Just dropped into my mailbox...

Focus this quarter is "All-American IRREGULARS from the Colonial Frontier to the Navy Seals"

Ok so points lost for the NAVSPECWAR reference as the most recent would be the Raiders or maybe some of those other entities that are leveraging the limelight.

Parochialisms aside, a good read and available online


First article in the focused edition is "Who are Special Operations Forces"

So just who is involved in reconnaissance, unconventional warfare and counterterrorism efforts within the U.S. military? Probably far more distinct units and joint forces than you expect! The Special Operations Forces (SOF) umbrella includes numerous units representing the Air Force, Army, Navy and Marines, all falling under the Department of Defense’s United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). However, the name “Special Forces” is reserved for certain units within the U.S. Army, commonly referred to as Green Berets after the distinctive headwear worn by these units.

Thanks! Interesting stuff, particularly the dive into places to go in SC that are "Frances Marion country."
