Nashville Mini-Reunion Reservations Deadline Approaching

To all who plan to attend the Nashville mini reunion (12-15 May 2011). Request you book your room ASAP. Billie Slayton has reserved 20 rooms and is obligated to pay for 10. To date there are only 8 rooms reserved which leaves Billie obligated to pay for two. The deadline for the hotel to hold the rooms at the quoted price is 15 April although he thinks they might extend that for a few days. I talked to Billie today, 12 April, and he is working on arrangements for a Bar-B-Q for Saturday night so it seems as though that issue has been settled.

Their email address is www.wingatehotels.com Phone # is 615-277-8700. Mention CCA or Billie’s name when making reservations. Any problems ask for Donna.

Thanks, Tim McCann

All Applicants Must Have Military Background

Spike TV and GRB Entertainment are looking for a few good Special Ops for its newest challenge series, “Most Lethal.” Hosted by former U.S. Navy Seal Richard “Mack” Machowicz, the new one-hour series will feature real-life warriors from the top tiers of special operation forces as they face-off in a grueling competition to determine who is the fiercest.

Applicants seeking to compete must no longer be on active duty and have served in SOF units such as Navy SEALs, Army Special Forces, Army Rangers, Marine Force Recon, Air Force Combat Control Team or Pararescue Teams. Must also be physically fit and combat ready.

Must be available July & August 2011 for competition


Twelve elite combat operators will compete in an intense and demanding series of challenges based on real world training and missions. The challenges are being created by a handpicked team of operators and instructors, and they will take place at top line tactical training facilities throughout the country.

“It’s not enough for them to be fit, strong and great with weapons,” said GRB CEO Gary R. Benz. “We’re going to test every combat skill and tactical response in the book. Then, we’re going to throw away the book and find out what they learned on the battlefield.”

Among the areas being evaluated are: decision-making, accuracy, tactical response, rope work, breaching, reconnaissance, close combat, force escalation, heavy weapons, endurance, threat assessment, speed, resourcefulness and much more. The successful operator will earn a hundred thousand dollar prize and a donation in their name to the Fallen Heroes Fund.

Former U.S. Navy Seal Harry Humphries has joined the ‘Most Lethal’ production team as senior military advisor. In addition to his experience within the military, and as an instructor – Harry served as the Military Advisor to films such as “Black Hawk Down”, “Transformers 1, 2 & 3”, “The Kingdom” and “The Rock”.


Email your military resume and a recent photo to sofsearch@grbtv.com and if you have any questions please contact us at 818-728-4131.

Message from Col (Ret) Sherman

ST Warriors,

It’s been my honor and privilege to serve alongside you for the last 24+ years. I continue to be in awe of your accomplishments in garrison and most importantly, on the battlefield. A special thanks to all who contributed to the undeserved but most appreciated engraved Glock pistol and shadow box and to Lt Col Pat Barnett and Capt Gabe Brown for making that happen.

As I leave the AF, I look forward to not having staff and paperwork but will absolutely miss working with some of the finest Americans and human beings on the planet. Words cannot express my admiration/appreciation for all you do. If there’s anything I can do for you as a retired guy, don’t hesitate to ask.

Thank you for your service.

Good luck and Godspeed.

SN out.
