Tracking Afghanistan

Afghanistan Veteran, 23 year-old Royal Marine Craig Tucker

Royal Marine Craig Tucker is a believer.  On his first tour of Afghanistan, he got launched into the air by a bomb that mostly failed.  Marine Tucker, above, recently attended the British tracking school on Borneo Island.  Marine Tucker gives a “thousand yard stare” while I click some photos, then we burst into laughter before beginning another day of training.

Please read the following emails about the tracking course in Brunei.  The British military welcomes American forces to the school, but few attend.
