In the days following 9/11, America turned to twelve strong men to bring justice to the perpetrators and their protectors. Teaming up with other American assets and a ragtag group of Afghans, the Green Berets of ODA 595 liberated Afghanistan and sent al Qaeda into hiding. Operating on horseback in nearly impassable terrain, the GIs combined 21st century technology with 19th century tactics to overcome the enemy. For more on their story, check out SWORDS OF LIGHTNING, written by Captain Mark Nutsch and CW3 Bob Pennington, with Jim DeFelice.
