    how’d the wreckers get thru? In my crazy situation- In which the cop did NOT tell me to drive over a car- but DID tell me I was on my own and to figure it out quick because I was blocking his city at rush hour, there was no way a wrecker could fit. I couldn’t move a foot in either direction. Professors and students at temple university literally gave up and started walking to their classes.

    I can smile about it now, but at the time, it was insanity. I still can’t believe how it played out. To this day. Just shows, you really have to breathe and just show some patience- a solution usually presents itself if you let it

    You’d be surprised how many hsld guys like to brag friendo. The running joke is every seal is an author who just isn’t published yet.
    That said I will agree 10% of the guys claiming to be seals actually are.

    Don't get me wrong. If I were to say I was close personal friends with any Seals I would be guilty of being the subject of this thread. My point was not that we don't know Seals. Seals have written books. In fact, look at this list! LINK

    I would say most all people that are in public or who write books are real seals as their bona fides will be challenged very quickly. I understand your point and actually agree with you. However, this was not what I was trying to say. I'm saying if you are sitting in some truck stop lunch counter and some person also sitting in that counter says they are/were a Seal OR any Special Ops type the likelihood of this being true is almost nonexistent.

    I live in Hampton Virginia, actually, I live in the Phoebus section of Hampton. ALL of this area is Military based. There are three 4 star Officers that hold commands in Hampton Roads military bases. The only other area with more that I know of is Hawaii and DC. There are shipyards all over this area. Every day I run into Veterans. Many Seals active and retired live here. There is a lady that lives about 200 feet from my apartment who was married to a Seal. I confirmed this with Don Shipley. I stand by what I stated before. Unless they have decided to go public Seals are a closed-off group that sticks together and you won't see them mouthing off in Bars and Truck Stop lunch counters. By going public I am referring to doing interviews on TV or writing a book. Also sometimes you will see them doing this ---------
