The Special Operations family is a large one. Especially when you include international forces, which the Special Operations Memorial does. Too few in our community (outside of those in Tampa) know it exists, but as there are thousands of us who have fought alongside local forces in the past decade +, it has special meaning. And I knew a few guys whose names are etched on the walls, and one of them could have been mine, or Brian‘s, or any of my buddies. So the least I can do is say thanks to their families, and help honor their memory.
