The first thing for you to know is that nothing about the following story is unique. The places we came from were different, and all that went into who we were at that certain point in our lives may have been different, but the results were the same and our willingness and determination were identical.
You should also know that not one of us wanted anything other than to do our job in complete anonymity. And we wouldn’t have used that word, but we knew the concept and it fit us perfectly.
Doing our job right meant we were gone before anyone knew we’d been there and long before any thanks. We didn’t need thanks…we knew what had changed before anyone else, and we’d already be gone.
So what you’re about to read is nothing more than a few stories by one member of a special team, and about the easy part: back home. And it’s dedicated to all of us whose stories will never be told.
For the record, we always knew who the real heroes are, and it’s not the few given special training and access to most anything needed and the freedom to complete missions no matter how unlikely.
No, the real heroes are the soldiers who follow orders into a pitched battle knowing the odds are they won’t make it, but believing in their leaders and their country so deeply they will not stop.
Like Firefighters running into a burning building and Law Enforcement running toward shots being fired.
The Real Heroes.
