Tourists into the Heart of Darkness
"A lot of confusion, a lot of humor, a lot of broken dreams and broken promises, an occasional triumph." Once a soldier has survived the ultimate contest between skill, luck, and happenstance, which defines combat, everything else seems easy and within reach. In his military career Nick Brokhausen had participated in some of the most dangerous and daring operations the United States had undertaken as a nation. After two decades in the Special Forces, including two deployments to MACV-SOG, he decided to leave the service and reinvent himself. Teaming up with Jeff Miller and other SF vets, Nick decided to use the skills he had acquired in his military career to make his way in the world. In his own inimitable style, Nick weaves the tale of a truly unique career path, running counter-terrorism training courses for SWAT teams, testing the security for the Los Angeles Olympics, training private bodyguards for wealthy families in Mexico, working security projects around the world, recovering kidnap victims, and advising resource developers. Things rarely go to plan, but a mere detail like that never stops the Green Berets.
