Did You Know?


Several members of the Unit may have had an unofficial cameo in the BMW film 'Ticker'. When the Driver arrives at a military base, Robert Patrick and Dennis Haybert are seen playing plain clothes agents, looking much how they look in various episodes when they were protecting high value assets.

In an Army unit there would actually been several layers of command between the Colonel (later Brigadier General) and The Unit itself. This would have included at least one Major or Captain and one or more Lieutenants. While the Colonel would have overall operational command at the base level, the junior officers would likely have had more of a direct command and control responsibility for the enlisted personnel.

Fired Up! -Please read- Military perspective
27 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is a very entertaining show. The writing is good, the characters are both interesting and multi-dimensional. The lighting and set design are very appropriate for a mainstream network series. Excellent use of steady-cam and "documentary style" camera work.

I respectfully disagree with some of the previous comments by my fellow veteran. I believe that he may not have had much contact with the spec ops community in his 10 year career.

We should remember that this is a television series- If the cameras rolled in the average combat spec ops unit, it *might* last a whole episode...*might*.

While the wives in this show do seem to be a very comely group, The same probably applies to the men- as is fitting for a cast of actors.

If anything, the actors seem a little young to be from the unit. The average age in Delta is over 30, minimum age to apply is 22. As far as out of shape, senior soldiers don't fit the 3% body fat runner look that many young garritroopers sport.

The tactics used by the actors would definitely be out of place even in an infantry unit- but I have trained with enough operators to know that they can look sloppy and distracted (unmilitary) a fraction of a second before they tear through the target. I saw one step into a room, draw, engage 5 targets, and holster in 3 seconds - Then almost get tossed off the course for not wearing a regulation helmet.

While the dialog is not what we would hear in the field (too many syllables and too few profanities), it is intended to help the viewer understand and experience the flow of tension and action- which I feel it dies well.

While the homes are officer and senior NCO grade, it is very similar to the newer housing at Ft. Bragg (Where the unit it most expressly not stationed).
