    Great post.
    I've read bits and pieces about him over the years.
    He seems to be one of those rare men who come along every generation or so.

    Isn't he the guy who jumped into Iran to reconnoiter the situation prior to the rescue attempt?
    From what I have read, he had an incredible mixture of competence and courage.

    I just reached the point in the book where they started discussing the Iranian Hostage crisis..

    Needless to say thus far I feel like a totally insignificant human being by comparison.

    Thanx for the all the kind words guys - in all honesty Dick Meadows embodies, in one person, the very reasons I joined not only special forces but Delta in the first place

    I just wish I could have met him - if possible I plan on doing a TV show highlighting his career

    Time will tell

    I will look forward to that show very eagerly. I hope everything aligns to make it happen.

    Larry,

    You should send a copy of that to the author of the book.

    What you wrote should be the foreword in the next edition.

    You should go over to Amazon and post that verbatium in the review section for that book too.

    I too am now going to read this book.

    LAV not sure if you know this man or his background but thought it would be a good fit here.

    Great book about a great soldier.

    I was just talking with an old friend from the 82d. Dick Meadows was a Ranger Instructor (RI) in FL phase when my buddy went through the course. Said he was a quiet guy who motivated all and it was kinda strage thinking, here is a Son Tay Raider riding in our RB7 as we hit Santa Rosa Island grading me as patrol leader!

    I just finally finished it this evening, and frankly I'm still in awe that men of such fortitude, competence, and character exist.. Men like Major Meadows are what role models should be growing up. Just... wow...
