Larry Vickers with 18 Bravos in the SFQC

I thought some of you all might be interested in seeing this video: https://www.*******.com/watch?v=oztwa4BUpsU

Larry Vickers has several other videos on his page from his time at the 18B weapons course.

I do not believe the OP was implying anything.

I've read about Mr. Vickers and understand that he is a very knowledgeable professional.

I was not questioning his credibility, I just wanted to share a video I thought might interest you all.

Congratulations to your son; I am sure you are proud of him. Happy early Father's Day!

Not my intent to "imply" anything either.

As a new member, I was encouraging Redwood to use the search function to verify his findings, before posting.

QP Vickers has been mentioned in 90 posts and he exploits are well known to many readers here.

Thanks for the encouragement. I will be sure to check out more of the posts regarding Mr. Vickers as he is a very interesting man that I'd like to read even more about.

I already had a general understanding of his background and military service, so I do not understand what you are suggesting I need to verify before posting. None of the other threads had mentioned this video (which was somewhat obscure as nothing in the title or description eluded to SF), thus I thought my posting it here on a forum widely used by Quiet Professionals and those interested in SF would allow interested parties to watch a relevant video that they might not have seen otherwise.

I believe that my post only furthered to shine light on Mr. Vicker's exploits so that even more readers can become aware of the work that he does.

And I believe you're missing the point. In our world Mr. Vickers is an everyday kinda guy. You might ought to be posting his wonderful exploits in/on another website for those that "do not" know him. As was pointed out, we know who he is..... he's just another great American.

Roger that. For an outsider it was interesting to see 18 bravos in training. That's why I originally wanted to share. I also thought that former QPs may enjoy a video showing current Special Forces soldiers in training. Mr. Vickers is definitely in good company.
