    POTD: Special Forces In Action - Robin Sage

    Photo Of The Day and what could be better than a few Green Berets opening fire in the Jungle (of central North Carolina)? These Special Forces candidates are doing their final stages of something called Robin Sage. It’s a combination of the name of the town of Robbins, N.C., which is a part of the operations and the former Army Colonel Jerry Sage. Mr. Sage was a World War II veteran in unconventional warfare tactics.

    Here is the caption following the photo:
