    Coffee or Die Magazine’s Marty Skovlund Jr. was given exclusive access to embed with a Special Forces team in the mountains of Afghanistan, and accompany them on a combat mission into ISIS-held territory.

    These Green Beret’s fit the common tropes associated with Special Forces: beards, long-ish hair, and relaxed attitudes along with a few sleeve tattoos sprinkled in for good measure.

    Although they sport ball caps and Glocks in lieu of cowboy hats and six-shooters, they are frontiersman all the same — charged with taming the Mohmand Valley.

    The team operates out of COP Blackfish, an isolated outpost in the Mohmand Valley and only a short walk from where the controversial “MOAB” was dropped last year.

    I didn't expect the special forces to be dressed so "chill" they were wearing t shirts and stuff rather than full combat gear.

                                  Did you not hear Obama in the war in 2010 there's no more war in Afghanistan why you guys pretending there's a war in Afghanistan this was published in 2018 or 19 it seems odd that you guys are still be going after caliban's according to the government and Obama the war is over and the Taliban double exists in there on to Isis and the other idiots and Syria

                                                Sorry but after the Afghanistan Papers this "war" is looking even more stupid and yes I did my time and served over there. Wasn't worth anybodies life or time and every vet I've talked to about it agrees.

I mean maybe with a 308 or any kind of 50 cal sniper rifle, but I'm not sure what's going on there with the fully auto from that distance. Either way good stuff.

Today it's mostly just basic stuff they do all the high level stuff goes to JSOC. Nothing in this video couldn't be done by a regular infantry team. SF is basically being used for everything now.
