MARSOC Team Members: Raiders or Not?

For Memorial Day, how about a tribute story on some real live bad ass Raiders in Afghanistan. I'm sure some of these guys aren't Raider fans, but I'm pretty sure all Raider fans are fans of theirs. I admire their mind set, defiant and proud of it. "One thing I hear a lot is "why would you wear a bright blue patch in a war zone, why not subdued colors?" Answer, we were not afraid or concerned with the patches giving away our location. BMG was a hopeless situation and there was no "avoiding the enemy" there. We liked it that way and after the first few run ins with the Taliban and subsequent ass-kicking, they began to associate that "blue patch" to a world of hurt. They became a clear indicators to the enemy that we are not the guys you want to fuck with, go find some NATO/European patrol to ambush… you don’t want this."
