    Maybe someone else would have said it 5 minutes later ... or not.

    That was a highlight moment for me - much as I'd like to think it's well-burned into my protocol.

    Yep it seems like the protocol is go...no go but retreat is is more of an after thought. Cody seemed to work that into the discussion quite a bit proactively. I can also see where it may be more dangerous as well. Feels so sad for his loved ones.

    That was a tough read. I feel like I could have wound up in the same situation if I was there. Gonna keep this one in the front of my mind for a while for sure.

    Had to have been hard for Ben to write in particular, as I am sure he knew Dan well.
