Nutrition while traveling.... Salad kit + Rotisserie chicken. 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻 As long as you have a few minutes to find a grocery store, top priorities for keeping your nutrition in check while on the road is picking up some 1. veggies 2. fresh fruit, and 3. lean protein. I love @dolesunshine #SaladKits that come with your greens, toppings like sunflower seeds and cranberries, AND the dressing all in one So there is no prep involved! You can literally mix it up and eat it straight out of the bag if you wanted. Other great protein toppings: tuna packets; chopped ham (cold breakfast items or meat section); turkey slices from the deli; beef jerky. #TDYfood #eatingonthego #specialtactics #operatornutrition #tdylife #travelingnutritionist

Everyone always has a plan until they get punched in the face. . This is what it looks like when perception meets reality. What will you do when that urge to breathe starts to consume you? Will you let it take over your mind and succumb to your primal urges, or will you be able to stay focused on the task at hand and finish the job? . The ability to ignore the pain and push through is what will bring you and others home from the Battlefield. #planforthepunch . . . #takeahit #USAF #pj #cct #tacp #howtobeapj #operator #poolside #poolparty #hooyah #neverquit #alwaysready #bamf #oaf #rescue #savinglives #thatothersmaylive #afsoc #specialoperations #teamwork #CRO #specialtactics #water #becool

🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏🙏🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏🙏 ❗❗❗Please read to the end.❗❗❗ This is just another tragic day that strikes the strongest of our military. For those that don't know, CCTs are also known as Combat Controllers. A part of the special forces community. They train until they think their bodies are gonna be broken forever, then they are built into some of the most incredible and most powerful people in our world. Please say a prayer for this brave young man. Only 22years old and in need of our support. Sidenote: if you have one negative thing to say about this at all, come say it to my face and I will be sure to let you know just how wrong you are!!!!

#SOFTruthThursday Special Operations Forces cannot be massed produced. • • • • It takes years to train operational units to the level of proficiency needed to accomplish difficult and specialized SOF missions. Intense training – both in SOF schools and units – is required to integrate competent individuals into fully capable units. This process cannot be hastened without degrading ultimate capability. #SOFTruth #AFSOC #AirCommandos #SpecialTactics ---l---🙏----l-------l-------🙏---👮🏻 --🙏----l------ ----🙏----👮🏻👮🏻 --👮🏻 -----l----🙏----------- ----🙏----l----👮🏻👮🏻 -------👮🏻 -----l-----l-🙏----------- ----🙏----l--------🙏-----l-----l-🙏----------- follow @veteran_post_daily for more

Combat Controller during training
This Sunday’s story... . The President takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to TSgt Robert O'Connor, Jr. for gallantry in connection with military ops against an armed enemy of the US while serving as a CCT with the 24th STS on 27 May 2009. On that date, TSgt O'Connor displayed great courage and tactical expertise in the execution of a combat mission to capture or eliminate a senior insurgent commander in the rugged mountains of eastern Afghanistan. Upon infiltration with his assault force, he precisely directed CAS on enemy positions who immediately engaged his team from inside 100 meters. With his personal weapon, he engaged several enemy fighters while simultaneously directing the CAS to neutralize the threat and coordinating medical evacuation of a severely wounded military working dog. When his element became pinned down by plunging heavy machine gun fire, he, with complete disregard for his own safety, repeatedly exposed himself to the withering enemy fire to locate and mark the enemy positions for CAS. Finally, when his command and control element were pinned down behind a rock outcropping, he exposed his entire body to enemy fire in a final attempt to neutralize the enemy position with 500 pound bombs from an A-10. Due to his conspicuous bravery under fire and expertise, he was able to destroy the position and was credited by the ground force commander with saving the lives of his teammates and turning the tide of the battle. By his gallantry and devotion to duty, TSgt O'Connor has reflected great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force. . #usaf #specialtactics #combatcontrol #cct #firstthere #afghanistan #oef #cas #droppingbombs #a10warthog #nottoday #hooyah #neverquit ⚡️

The President takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to TSgt Doug Matthews for gallantry in connection with military ops against an armed enemy on Nov 27, 2012. On that date, TSgt Matthews displayed extraordinary bravery, technical skill, and a complete disregard for his own safety when his vehicle struck a command detonated IED, immediately ejecting him from the 15 ton vehicle, and triggering a complex ambush. Sustaining head injuries and multiple lacerations from the blast, he immediately came to his feet and faced torrents of fire from 12 different enemy fighting positions, some as close as 30 meters to the beleaguered convoy. Though seriously wounded, he returned fire and immediately maneuvered back to his overturned vehicle to aid his wounded teammates. While under direct and accurate enemy fire, he discovered his team leader ejected from the vehicle and incapacitated from a traumatically amputated lower extremity. He moved the wounded Soldier to safety along an embankment while still exchanging fire with enemy forces, as secondary explosions from ammunition in the burning vehicle added to the chaotic scene on the narrow road. As his SOF Team regrouped, he furiously coordinated CAS and a MEDEVAC for his grievously injured teammates. He remained in exposed positions, despite increasing volumes of enemy fire striking all around his position, and accurately directed strafing runs to hold the attacking insurgent forces at bay. As MEDEVAC helos arrived, he refused to be evacuated with the other occupants of the now burning vehicle, and remained on scene to direct a withering barrage of CAS that eventually broke the back of the enemy attack. He continued to engage with multiple air platforms until a QRF arrived, allowing his team to break contact and return to their base. His heroism under fire while directing CAS allowed friendly forces to recover all personnel with no loss of life and maneuver out of the ambush's kill zone. His actions undoubtedly saved the lives of his wounded teammates and an Afghan interpreter. By his gallantry and devotion to duty TSgt Matthews has reflected great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force. ⚡️
