On this day August 26, 1993

On this day Manhunt begins. 3rd Battalion. 75th Ranger Regiment and 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment (DELTA) deploy to Somalia to capture warlord Mohammad Farrah Aidid.

I don’t know much but I do know that is not a team I would want chasing me. You are not escaping these guys. These are some of the best at what they do and true professionals that you will ever meet.

I was never in Somalia, but I have spoke to people who has and they can confirm what a shit hole. The unit I spent the most time in 10 years of my 20 year career was the 160th Special Operation Aviation Regiment. The show black Hawk Down was an aircraft from my Unit. This happened just two months after this man hunt began.
