Looking forward to reading everything Marty. Thank you for 32 years of friendship.
Amber wsas a luxury, but in the end it it didnt make much different on MSR Pluto in 2005, as anything south of the circle of love was always red.
IED s were just as deadly when the route was “Amber” which is your point no doubt brother.
never was a route Green. not the entire time we were there. Although, a few months after we got home, I attended a class for Composite Risk Management. The instructor was from the Army’s Center for Lessons Learned, and during one of our practice exercises, I was given a failing grade. In the exercise, the fictional route to be taken was evaluated to be AMBER. I and was told that I was incorrect for planning an operation when the route was not green. Sometimes, there is a real disconnect between theory and reality.
Brother Marty you are always the word smith. Looking forward to your book.
