Watch Out

When you need a mega dose of masculinity in an overnight package, call SpecialOpsWatch.com.

For $500-1,000 (depending on whether you're content to be a "Patriot" or wish to have a full-fledged Special Ops Stryker model), you may be the happy wearer of [from their site],

"Rugged military timepieces including the Black Hawk, Thunder Hawk, Patriot, Predator, Warrior, Navigator, Vulture, Camouflage series and the waterproof Xtreme Navy Seal Divers tactical watches. All are currently available, only from MTM, and will make a statement of efficiency, dependability and rugged individuality for many demanding years to come."

So get on board with that efficiency model. These watches may cost more than their Casio brethren, but they're a less sweaty way to get your "combat-ready" on. "Xtreme Ops, Dark Ops, Commando Ops, Spec Ops, Night Ops and Special Forces tactical watch models" are available.

Great for picking ups chicks in bars, too.

During my time in country the official SOG issue recon watch was a Seiko.

Heads up! I hate to be the bearer of bad news but Colonel Robert "Bad Bob" Howard died Wednesday. He's with the Big Airborne Ranger in the Sky now. RIP

Thanks for the sitrep on Bob Howard. This leaves only Caviani of the SOG era types.
I knew Howared and was friends with Miller. I did a few admin things with Caviani and all three were impressive in their own ways.
Miller and Howard were cold and in a different place than most normal people. Both had the smell about them.
I met Howard at CLT B 53 and worked in the Airborne training at Ft Benning Ga and Howard never once acknowledged my being.
He was aloof and distant whenever i was around him.
Miller always thought that killing people was a great pass time event that could rival pro sports.
Caviani always impressed me as just another soldier doing what soldiers do. I think he differed from H and M.in that he did what he had to do and did not necessarily enjoy the violence.
I mourn Howards passing.
