Canadian Mission in Afghanistan In Action

image.jpg

Canadian troops were deployed to Afghanistan after 9-11 when the War on Terror was launched in what became the largest combat mission for Canadian troops since Korea. 158 died and 2000 were wounded. This action video was compiled with footage from the battlefields and with contributions from the deployed troops and is worth the watch. The Canadian mission has wound down. SOF published articles in the last decade of Canadians in action and we want to thank all our Canadian warriors who fought alongside our troops. For all those who died, R.I.P brothers and for all those wounded and families who grieve the fallen thank you for your sacrifice. This video is part of the recent series honoring the Canadian troopers.

Congressional Panel Sounds Warning
By SOF

The United States military faces “high risk” as a result of the failure to provide enough funding to execute the strategy to “pivot” towards Asia. This is among the findings of the National Defense Panel, led by William Perry, a former Secretary of Defense in the Clinton Administration, and former CENTCOM commander John Abiazad.

MAXPEDITION'S Large Long Clip Point (LLCP) Fixed Blade Knife

Maxpedition® is the brainchild of founder and CEO Tim Tang, who in 2003 dropped out of medical school to start his own company in his parents’ garage. Ten years (and several progressively larger warehouses) later, Maxpedition is now thriving in its own Los Angeles-based corporate and distribution compound.

Innovative from the start, Maxpedition gained a competitive edge in its early years by creating bags and packs with superior durability and ergonomics, such as the Versipack® and Gearslinger® series. The first customers were military operators and law enforcement officers, but the civilian and concealed carry markets quickly caught on, selecting Maxpedition® as their preferred EDC (Every Day Carry).

RUSSIA’S GROUND-ATTACK WARBIRD

The Su-25 Frogfoot
By SOF

The Soviet Union was facing a problem in the 1970s. The United States was deploying the A-10 Thunderbolt, which was designed to carry out close-air-support missions, which could decimate the large tank formations that the Soviets were counting on to smash NATO. They needed something similar to inflict similar losses on NATO forces. Their answer was the Su-25, which they call Grach, but which may be better known as Frogfoot. If a war is in the news, more often than not, the Frogfoot is involved.
