Operation Eagle Claw: To You All, From Us All, For Having The Guts To Try

A watershed event in the history of US Special Operations was the 1979 hostage rescue attempt at the embassy in Tehran, Iran. Known as Operations Eagle Claw, this failed mission and the tragedy at the Desert One landing site led to the formation of US SOCOM and pushed special operations into the next generation. The best way we can honor the hostages who remained in captivity and the service members who lost their lives is to draw some lessons learned and acknowledge their sacrifice for having “The Guts To Try.”

    Hi Jim,
    I read your piece in the NOV/DEC 2019 issue of CONCEALED CARRY MAGAZINE. Couldn’t agree with you more on all of the points that you made on both sides of the argument. I was born in NYC, of immigrant Cuban parents who were fleeing Communism, and treasure my GOD given rights under the US Constitution. My parents had personal stories of the actions of a tyrannical government!
    GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
    As a life-long NJ resident and lawful gun owner since 1990, I have long-since given up on the possibility that I would ever be granted a NJ concealed carry permit.
    Look forward to the day when I escape this progressive, liberal state and move to a state that respects gun rights & the 2nd Amendment!!

    I enjoyed your article in volume 17, issue 4. The points you made were well thought out. I would like to see an article that us in the gun community could actually study. Actual statistics of mass shootings and every day shootings that occure and all the laws that already don’t stop these tragic events. It would be nice to have all that information in my head the next time someone says we need more gun control.
    Thank you. Please keep me anonymous.
