Dear Lynn Thompson
I am currently working as an instructor/mentor in the Afghan Commando Training Program. In the attached photo you will see myself, my interpretor, and my students the day before they graduate.
As a retired US Special Forces soldier I believe that all warriors should carry a knife that their life can depend on if needed. When it came time to decide what to give my Commandos as a graduation present the choice was easy. My students kept trying to talk me out of my COLD STEEL GI TANTO so I ordered one for each of my guys. I had our local tailor shop make a sheath with the Commado Patch and each man's name and rank for parades and display. They are now the envy of every other Commando on the camp.
These Commandos will be leaving shortly after graduation to take the fight to that Taliban and any other insurgents that threaten the freedom of their country. Thanks for making a knife that I can give these soldiers that they can depend on when the need arises.
