As @Silversnake reminded me today, we should take time to reflect on the 20th Anniversary. There was a systematic failure during the operation in many regards. Due to that event, lesson's were learned, tactics modified and lives have been saved many a time, since that fateful day. What happened with the operation and the heroic stories of valor that came out from the actions of the men on the ground, many know today due to Black Hawk Down. A lot of good men died and heroes made, in the effort to save their fellow man from slaughter in a hostile country. I for one salute those men!! God Bless!!
