Task Force Orange
Task Force Orange is the JSOC moniker of the United States Army Intelligence Support Activity (USAISA) or “the activity.’ Formed after the Iranian Hostage Crisis, TFO is now a self contained SMU (special missions unit), and provides the Tiered Special Operations community with actionable intelligence ahead of discrete missions. If you know about TFO, then you know we can’t tell everything in this drink- we may even have to change the name between operations just to protect its identity!
Big Red 1
Big Red 1 is named after the First Infantry Division, the longest continually serving active duty Army Division which has been in continual service since before World War 1. “If you’re gonna be one, be a Big Red 1.”
if you are a US paratrooper, you know the pride of wearing the maroon beret. Troopers will complain that it takes two hands to put it on, keeps your head hot in the summer, ears cold in winter, and won’t keep the sun out your eyes at any time of the year. At least it’s not from a second hand store!

(Blackberry-Mint Moscow Mule) Operation Gothic Serpent was carried out by our special operations troops in 1993. The mission in Somalia was to take down a warlord that had attacked UN Forces and brutalized the local people. The “Mogadishu Mile” was named for the rangers and operators that ran behind the vehicles under fire after the extraction of the dead and wounded – it was almost 3 miles long. We knew many of the warriors that fought on the ground and in the air that day. This one is for them.
