It sounds alot like SOF. With militaries having SOF battalions is there a need for light infantry?

After listening to the Jocko Willink podcast I suspect that my close friend, Rick Bennett, was in SOG. Rick never spoke the term “SOG”, but he said that most of his missions were over the line in Laos and North Viet Nam with indig partners. He said they did Ho Chi Minh trail observation and lots of ambushes. I’m hoping that there is someone who remembers Rick from that time. Here is what I can remember about him regarding his service: Rick Bennett, born 1944 (in Delaware) Lived on horse / cattle ranch in WY until he volunteered for the US Army. I believe he did basic at Fort Dix. At Fort Benning he landed poorly on his first training jump (crushed his canteen flat against his hip, but kept on and graduated with his class) and became an Airborne Ranger and then a Green Beret. There is a ‘Rick’ Bennett who graduated with Special Forces Training Group Communications Class 66-3 Rick served three in-country tours and I believe that he got out about 1968 as a Master Sergeant. One time he showed me a Montagnard crossbow that he had used for silent kills on high-value targets (in their own hooch at night). I learned about auto-rotation landings and HILO jumps from Rick. He said that he was on an A-Team and in 3 helicopter crashes. One time his team parachuted in and were hung up in the tree canopy while NVA passed directly underneath (searching for the inserted team). He wore a brass bracelet on one wrist - given to him as a status of manhood by Montagnard compatriots in the Vietnamese highlands. He had gotten two, but gave one of his bracelets to John Wayne. Apparently, John Wayne wore it the rest of his life. Rick said that he and his buddies took John Wayne out to a bar (possibly in Saigon), got him drunk and got him laid. Her said that he and his buddies would sometimes dunk a live lizard in their beer and chow it down to make an impression on the other bar patrons. Rick said (more than once) that he’d give his left nut for one more (R&R) night in Bangkok. I remember him saying that he had a “get out of jail free card” when he was in-country. In 1985 or 1986 he showed me a photo of himself on patrol (wearing Tiger Stripes) in Soldier of Fortune magazine. The photo caption did not identify him by name. After Vietnam, he did many things, including being a school bus driver in Saratoga, WY and he was in a biker gang out there called the Hog Fuckers. Rick was one of my closest friends during my early 20’s (in the early 1980’s). He referred to me as the “little brother that I never had”. At that time, he was still doing PT early each morning. He called his exercises “The Dirty Dozen”. We lived together for 3 years as fellow wilderness skills instructors at the Tracker School. I only have two photos of him, but our other buddies from that time would have photos, as well as more stories. He took me to a bar on my 21st birthday for my first shot of whisky. (He warned me that Wild Turkey could turn a man into a screaming chicken.) He had a saying for every moment. When referring to his band of brothers he would say, “None like us and damn few of us”. Another Rick-ism was, “busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kickin contest”. Unfortunately, I cannot ask him about anything now as he was killed in a work accident in 1994 (in Delaware). Listening to the SOG episodes helps me to understand my friend (and even more proud to be an American). It would be meaningful to hear from someone who also knew Rick. Any friend of Rick Bennett is a friend of mine.
WOW, awesome podcast!!!
there is another notable Dull Knife who led the N Cheyenne in a breakout from Ft Robinson in 1878.
in Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher, Edward Curtis walks the Little Bighorn battlefield with his watch and showed that the official report about what happened when was WAY off
in Lakota, "wica" the c is pronounced as "ch"
methinks you'd enjoy On Desperate Ground by Hampton Sides (fight at Chosin Reservoir)
for delicacy of honor working out horribly, look no further that the battle of Flodden in 1513. I lost 3 ancestor uncles and Scotland lost a king
Talk about #Mahsa_Amini . Be our voice❤
#TakeAction best of the chapter.
