From a loyal reader:
Just a quick word of advice (based on my experience as a two-time commander of combat units):
The Corner is great…keep it up and PLEASE don’t take this the wrong way, but anybody can get caught up in these kinds of things and I just respectfully ask y’all take an extra minute before hitting the “Send” key on your posts…
Don’t speculate how many are killed in an operation, either by accident or direct enemy action.
Rule #1: The first intelligence reports are usually wrong.
Rule #2: Every time a family with members deployed hears something went wrong, their stomachs do somersaults…don’t make it worse by guessing how many were involved.
Again, I know this is probably something you are well aware of, but I thought it needed to be said–no intent to offend.
