    On topic, will definitely get this book, part of my interest in firearms is the historical side and LAV does it well. Also, had a class with Marshall that was absolutely fantastic, he came to our agency familiarize us with the AK and boy was that awesome. Bought my 106 shortly thereafter and it is a keeper!
    If you want to talk to Ted directly I can give you his number if you send me a PM.

    Hopefully somebody else has a better memory than I do on the subject.
    Mr. Vickers was not a member of 1st SFOD-D when it was founded in 1977, he graduated high school sometime in the 80's and enlisted in a delayed entry program before he graduated.

    As for the workout, in the video you guys are talking about he mentions Iron Forge Athletics in Fayetteville, NC that was started up by two SF Soldiers.

    Don't know why but I had it in my head that he was part of the freshman class. At any rate thanks for the clarification and for remembering the group that helped him out.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    Thank you Moose-Knuckle... I had forgotten the mention of Iron Forge in the video. This is what I was referring to.
    7n6, no need sir I was just crediting him with an outstanding class relaying a ton of info in a limited time. He also let us try out some of his NFA stuff including a 13" Galil SAR (the original one) which I fell in love with.
    Steyr AUG, agreed 100%.
    Can't wait to get my copy of this book...

    No problemo gents, glad I could be of service. Everything I have learned about Mr. Vicker's is from his interviews which are all on YouTube, some his own production staff did, others were the Military Channel, and even the Trey Knight interviews of him are loaded with truth bombs and nuggets about his storied career.
