-Your Thoughts of U.S. Special Forces soldiers in Afghanistan?

From The Front Lines of The War on Terror:

DESPERATE LANDS is the unprecedented story of U.S. Army Special Forces Soldiers and the missions they have carried out while fighting the war on terror in Horn of Africa and in Afghanistan.

The book is unique and timely, in that it tells the compelling story of our nation’s struggle and of its soldiers fighting a new and different war never fought before-a Global War onTerror.

The true story comes at a time when our nation has divided feelings and opinions about the war-a division that exists among both government leaders and the American people.

These pages offer a different perspective-that of the lower enlisted soldiers-reflecting their personal experience in combat zones in Africa and Afghanistan as they witness and experience the fog of war.

The author-Special Forces Master Sergeant Regulo Zapata, Jr.- shares his extraordinary journey through ancient and desperate lands at the front lines of this on going war.

Here are true stories-of sacrifice, bravery, excitement, horror, anger, tedium, fear, camaraderie, and more - a firsthand look behind the headlines at the reality of the exceptional and difficult challenges U.S. Army Special Forces soldiers face as they defend America against the terrorist threat.

Book Available Thru:
Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders and Nadores Publishing & Research.

Should Women Be Allowed In Combat?


Do you feel that military women should be allowed in a combat zone ?

The question is, why? Aren’t women supposed to be kept out of units that may see combat?


The Pentagon is implementing new military plans that will make the concept of women in combat a reality.

The Center for Military Readiness warned that the Pentagon is flouting policies mandated by Congress in an effort to implement politically correct policies that increase the number of uniformed women put into harm’s way.

Others suggest the Pentagon tinkering with rules forbidding women in combat is a clear effort to increase boots on the ground as the troop-strapped DoD faces manpower shortages in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere around the globe.

Several female U.S. soldiers have thus far been killed in combat in Iraq and many more have been seriously wounded.

Female combat pilots and military police (patrolling the streets of Iraq and Afghanistan, for instance) are a recognized part of Congress’s loosening of the restriction on the roles females can play in combat operations, even though there remains fixed in the rule book a regulation that exempts women from direct ground combat units that engage in deliberate offensive action against the enemy.
