Being in the Army Special Forces turns you into a weapon. Some weapons hold grudges for a long time.
This time, Popp talks about Special Forces Team Week. Team is an anagram for Meat. Welcome to hell.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7laGtzA-6Ml Special Forces is some serious shit, and only the best (or perhaps the most insane) can make it through the selection process.
Popp tells the story of how he entered the US Army’s Special Forces selection process.
Giving young Badd Popp a bunch of stuff to set on fire probably wasn’t the best idea a commanding officer ever had.
The movies make this look very different from reality.
Recovering from Ranger School, Popp was recycled and had a number of sick calls. This is the story of “The Big Get-Over.”
Ranger School wasn’t all wine and roses. There’s a lot of abuse and some guys who deserve to be punched for it.
Getting drunk on a boat sounds fun, but shit can go south really quick.
Obstacle courses are rough. Gun fights in bars that look like a Peckinpah climax are even rougher.
When shit goes south, sometimes you have to actually run for your life.
When you’re driving five tons of steel on uneven terrain, things can go wrong in a hurry.
