I'm an old Marine ..
Served between 1980 - 1986 ..
Call me a Beirut / Grenada era veteran ..
But I was also witness to the capture of 2 DPRK agents within our compound ..
That was III MAF (forward) in ROK ..
That was 1982 ..
But for the most part, I trained against those Russkies (aka the Soviets) ..
I'm all too familiar with the term SITREP ..
I was a 2542, Communication Center Operator ..
I worked with both mainframe computers and WWII era teletype and crypto ..
Worked with some the the very first generation SATCOM (secured) ..
Later in my career as an NCO, with a working TS/SCI I would cross-train into an 0211 ..
That's Intelligence / Counterintelligence (Operations and Analysis) ..
Back to them "Russkies" ..
You see, they would not be the RF (Russian Federation) today ..
Along with their 13% flat tax since 2001 ..
If it were not for ONE key individual ..
The thing about this particular person .........................................................
Well, I'll just let the "horse's mouth" speak here ..
