Arrow 5th Special Forces

Group US beret flash..
The 5th SFG(A) traces its lineage to the 1st Battalion, 3rd Regiment, 1st Special Service Force, a combined Canadian-American organization which was constituted on 5 July 1942. It was activated four days later on 9 July at Fort William Henry Harrison, Montana.. During World War II, the 1st Special Service Force was disbanded on 5 December 1944 in Villeneuve-Loubet, France..5th Group was constituted on 15 April 1960, concurrently consolidated with Headquarters and HQ Company, 5th Ranger Infantry Battalion (activated 1 September 1943)..5th Group was reactivated 21 September 1961 at Fort Bragg, North Carolina..On 1 October 2005, the unit was redesignated as the 5th Special Forces Group, 1st Special Forces Regiment..What kind of beer would you like?..

I imagine that right now, you're feeling a bit like Alice..Hmm?..

Television is a telecommunication medium used for transmitting sound with moving images in monochrome (black-and-white), or in color, and in 2 or 3 dimensions..The subconcscious is powerful.. It is aware of every particle and detail around you.. But it doesn't know the difference between fact or fiction and acts on all information passing through the conscious mind as fact, and responds to it.. So what do you think happens when you watch silly, moron, goofy commercials and TV programs?. They are training your thought processes..Tele-vision became available in crude experimental forms in the late 1920s.. After World War II, an improved form became popular in the US and Britain, and TV sets became commonplace in homes, businesses, and institutions..A matrix of 64 selenium cells, individually wired to a mechanical commutator, served as an electronic retina..The word TV comes from Ancient Greek τῆλε (tèle), meaning "far", and Latin visio, meaning "sight"..I'll get you a Rolling Rock...

You're cuter than I thought.. I can see why she likes you...

The site for Fort Campbell was selected on July 16, 1941, and the Title I Survey was completed November 15, 1941, coincidentally the same time the Japanese Imperial Fleet was leaving Japanese home waters for the attack on Pearl Harbor.. Construction of Camp Campbell began on January 12, 1942.. Within a year, the reservation designated as Camp Campbell was developed to accommodate one armored division and various support troops, with a total size of 102,414 acres (414 km2), and billets for 2,422 officers and 45,198 enlisted personnel..The War Department officially changed the address on September 23, 1942..Early in the summer of 1942, the post's initial cadre, one officer and 19 enlisted men, arrived from Fort Knox, Kentucky..In the spring of 1949, the 11th Airborne Division arrived at Campbell following occupation duty in Japan..The 11th was in residence there until early 1956..The 1st Brigade was sent for duty in Vietnam in July 1965..On May 2, 1966, Third Army General Order 161 directed the activation of a Basic Combat Training Center at Fort Campbell.. Basic Combat Training began on schedule July 11 with a full complement of 1,100 trainees.In June 1969 the killing of a suspected double agent Thai Khac Chuyen, and the attempt to cover it up, led to the arrest in July of se7en officers and one non-commissioned officer of the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) including the new commander, Colonel Robert B. Rheault in what became known as the “Green Beret Affair”.. It was responsible for covert intelligence collection operations in Cambodia.. The Training Center operated until April 15, 1972, when it was deactivated..On 12 December 1985, 246 servicemembers killed with eight aircrew shortly after takeoff from Gander, Newfoundland, Canada, during a return from peacekeeping duties in Egypt.. A memorial grove of trees and monument are near the post museum..In 1989, through ‘Operation Salam’, demining training camps for Afghans were established at Risalpur and Quetta in Pakistan under UN auspices..The 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) added to its combat history during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm comprising 106 special operations teams performing a wide variety of missions that spanned the scope of operations..General Norman Schwarzkopf described the Special Forces as "the eyes and ears" of the conventional forces and the "glue that held the coalition together"..On July 5, 1999, Private First Class Barry Winchell, 21, of 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment, was bludgeoned to death with a baseball bat in his barracks.. The murder was committed by Private Calvin Glover, who was egged on by Specialist Justin Fisher.. Apparently the motive was punishing Winchell for falling in love with Calpernia Addams, a transsexual showgirl..On October 13, 2005, Fort Campbell made international headlines when Private Nicholas Mikel opened fire on a group of soldiers training at the base..Early on April 26, 2011, a strong tornado struck the Campbell Army Airfield at Fort Campbell, destroying one building and causing heavy damage to several others, all of which were large and well-constructed.. Large doors were blown in on these buildings as well..The tornado was rated as an EF3 on the Enhanced Fujita scale..So, how are you, anyway?.What about your wounds?..

The radio presenter, reading the news broadcast that Valeri Petrofsky is listening to for information, is Frederick Forsyth...Radio is the use of radio waves to carry information, such as sound, by systematically modulating some property of electromagnetic energy waves transmitted through space, such as their amplitude, frequency, phase, or pulse width..When radio waves strike an electrical conductor, the oscillating fields induce an alternating current in the conductor.. The information in the waves can be extracted and transformed back into its original form..The term "radio" is derived from the Latin word radius, meaning "spoke of a wheel, beam of light, ray".. It was first applied to communications in 1881..In the late 1880s, a variety of terms were initially used for the phenomenon, with early descriptions of the radiation itself including "Hertzian waves", "electric waves", and "ether waves", while phrases describing its use in communications included "spark telegraphy", "space telegraphy", "aerography" and, eventually and most commonly, "wireless telegraphy"..FM broadcast radio sends music and voice with less noise than AM radio..Colonel Walter E. Kurtz is the operations officer for the 5th Special Forces Group..I feel a lot of distance and I feel far away..I'll see ya later.. course, I'm well aware that you somehow consider yourself outside the normal chain of Command..But may I remind you that this is a Service, not a free-for-all!.And when you're done showing off, you come back to work for me..And I, as Director-General of the Security Service..We're willing to wipe the slate clean, give you a fresh start...
