Special Ground Forces Commander depicted in Smash Box Office Movie … Blackhawk Down
Maj. Gen. Gary Harrell
Featured Keynote CSF Master Sportsman
America still has great heroes who have stood in the gap in times of our nation’s peril and critical wartime operations. Probably one of the more well known military operations was popularized by the box office smash hit movie Blackhawk Down. The big screen cinema spectacular told the breath-taking 1993 story of one of our U.S. military tactical operations when then LT COL Gary Harrell commanded a small force of specially trained servicemen to surgically remove enemy combatants from the streets and houses of Mogadishu, Somalia.
