MY INTUITIVE REACTION INSTANTANEOUS TO THE HEADLINE WAS THE UKRAINIAN SOLDIERS COULD TEACH THIS RETIRED U.S. MARINE COLONEL A THING OR TWO!
From the online edition of "Newsweek" the article by BY JACK DUTTON ON 4/20/22.
American guerrilla in the Ukraine? Far from home but having the time of his life? The Russian has Wagner. The American has Mozart.
"The Mozart Group is a group of Western veterans that are training fighters in Ukraine, in what reports have described as the Western equivalent to Russian President Vladimir Putin's infamous Wagner Group."
"The Wagner Group—an elite paramilitary force that has been linked to the Russian president—has been deployed to Eastern Ukraine to try to achieve Moscow's military objective of securing the Donbas region. The elite private army—which is also known as Liga—was formed in 2014, during the war in Donbas in Eastern Ukraine and Russia's annexation of Crimea. The group has been linked to war crimes."
"The Mozart Group was established during the war by ex-U.S. commander Colonel Andrew Milburn, the first marine to lead a Special Operations Task Force during the war against the so-called Islamic State."
From nbcnews.com the article by Ken Dilanian May 3, 2022.
"Andy Milburn commanded a special operations task force fighting the Islamic State in Iraq."
"Milburn, who retired in 2019 as deputy commander of U.S. special operations forces in the Middle East, traveled to Ukraine in March intending to cover the conflict as a journalist. But he quickly decided he needed to get involved."
"Andy Milburn fought ISIS. Now he leads a team of special operations veterans that trains and equips Ukrainians in the battle against Russia."
ONE MORE FOR THE GIPPER COLONEL! YOU HAVE THE UTMOST RESPECT OF BERT!
