review Red Platoon 103 The only comprehensive firsthand account of the thirteen hour firefight at the Battle of Keating by Medal of Honor recipient Clinton Romesha for readers of Black Hawk Down by Mark Bowden and Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell   'It doesn't get better' To us that phrase nailed one of the essential truths maybe even the essential truth about being stuck at an outpost whose strategic and tactical vulnerabilities were so glaringly obvious to every soldier who had ever set foot in that place that the name itself. Red Platoon is easily the best first hand account of a military action that I have read There is a rare feel of honesty and nobility in Romesha s story and I think within the telling The reader gets a true sense of what it was like to be a soldier at an obscure outpost in AfghanistanKeating was an outpost in an isolated area in the Nuristan province in Afghanistan near the Urmul village Red Platoon was one of 3 platoons sent to the outpost Located in an area that was almost tactically indefensible and strategically incomprehensible these soldiers were sent to close it down The mission of Keating was unclear and its dangers were evident to even the newest recruits It s location violated the most basic tenets of combat strategy It was located at the bottom of a valley nestled in a mountainous area It was too far from the nearest military bases so helicopter and air support spotty and logistics were almost impossible It took large amounts of fuel to reach the outpost There were no real roads to the outposts It really was a strange setup by any military andor diplomatic objectives The real mission of Keating isn t covered in the book but Romesha speculated very tongue in cheek If I had to explain why we d been sent to Keating and what we were supposed to accomplish there what it apparently boiled down to was that we were helping the Afghan government beef up security just enough to kick start commerce in the region This would enable local people to start making money which they could then use to buy a bunch of DVD players and toasters and other sweet stuff for themselves and their families thereby magically transforming Nuristan into a hub of vibrant economic development At this point the government could hold elections which would enable folks to race off to the ballot box and vote to shut down the Taliban whereupon everybody could kick back in front of their new TV sets break out some cocktails and enjoy themselves Then Romesha states what he was told about the reasons for Keating US military s strategy at the time which was to use Keating and other remote combat outposts to tie up the insurgents resources in the hopes of preventing them from attacking larger towns and cities to the south Finally Romesha states what the soldiers think their mission is Our mission at Keating he declared is to turn these MREs into shit This is inside baseball but basically he is saying he doesn t know why they are there MRE stands for Meals Ready to Eat It is a real military acronym representing some not a very appetizing items but they are nutritious lightweight portable and will sustain youThis is what I loved about the book and what I think is it s most important message Soldiers don t often know exactly why they are where they are they do their duty But it is worth looking at how they see their world There is a superficiality in the way Americans view the concept of war and the reasons we are at war Soldiers are not that fluffy They don t have the luxury to be Romesha goes into a great deal of detail about what the soldiers go through I think he highlights a lot of things that Americans would do better if we were mindful of what our military does and how it is used Romesha talks a lot about the soldier with some statistics that gave me pause In the aftermath of 911 when America had committed itself to fighting two extended wars overseas one in Ira and the other in Afghanistan it consigned a relatively small group of young soldiers to something relatively new which was to send them abroad repeatedly and throw them into combat again and again and again sic The brunt of our fighting during this time was performed by less than one percent of our population and many of the folks who wound up on the front lines especially the ground pounders in the infantry were guys just like me men who joined up straight out of high school and had three or four deployments under their belts by the time their peers were finishing college Romesha goes on to discuss that the impacts of this military with the small number of soldiers being subjected to repeated deployments One of the clearest signs of the problem was the alarmingly high rate of PTSD especially among enlisted soldiers This wasn t always easy to detect at least not directly But you could discern it in the rising incidents of suicide and drug abuse Within a month or two the brigade found itself wrestling with substance abuse problems ranging from marijuana to cocaine and meth as well as incidents of depression that would contribute to three suicidesRomesha also does an excellent reveal of what it is like to be a soldier at Keating He goes into detail about all of the things that do they do where they live how they live the routine duties that most people would find disgusting the anticipation of the very few number of actual hot meals that they have in a given week their continued use of the internet as a connection to home their obsession with things that might seem nonsensical to most people but it makes them feel at home a tennis star s underwear for example read the book for explanation not that sordid the things they would do to relieve the boredom and tediousness of everyday life Honestly it comes across as dreary and without benefit of comradery and friendships these men would all be certifiable In fact Romesha shows signs of extreme behavior in some of his tales before the attack To ferret out snipers for example I would climb onto the sponson box a big rectangular storage compartment on the turret of our lead tank pretend it was a surfboard and balance myself out there as we clattered through the streets of Habbaniyah daring any Irai marksmen to take a shot at me and expose their positionsAll while being surrounded by indigenous people who don t like them there And the soldier whether conditioned or through personal experience are not too keen on the Afghani people either While they had a healthy respect for the people in the province there was a mutual inherent distrust THE PROVINCE OF NURISTAN is so isolated and poor that US soldiers who have logged time there often refer to it as the Appalachia of Afghanistan Like Appalachia this region on the southern side of the Hindu Kush is home to a population of fiercely independent people who have a reputation for insularity and backwardness and who take a dim view of outsiders They also know how to fight And as for the Afghans that were supposed to fight alongside the soldiers from Romesha s view there was no admiration or respect only contempt We viewed them as lazy and incompetentBear in mind that it s clear that Red Platoon and Romesha had almost no real formative contact with the Afghanis and that he does not have any relationships with any of them so it is a one sided presentation This is not a criticism But having contempt even for the supposed good guys does dehumanize which makes it easier to kill them I also say this to make a point Soldiers are not meant to see all sides Their job is combat They thrive in the absolutes In fact it is an important part of command and control in war In battle responses must be reflexive almost instinctual They can t be mulling over what is fair or right Seconds are the difference between alive and dead At this point the book begins a blow by blow description of Romesha s involvement in the battle and the heroics that earned him a Medal of Honor For me the descriptions became a little repetitive and slowed the pace But I will also say that his descriptions and explanations were excellent He went into great detail about what was going on from his standpoint and what was going on in Command Posts etc to make conditions on the ground advantageous Of particular distinction were his descriptions and explanations of the air support specifically the Apache helicopter pilots and the Air Force pilots It was well articulated researched and presented To be fair his entire presentation of the battle was excellent explaining the nature of all of the dangers they faced the armaments the evacuation of the village the strategy of both Taliban and the military and why it was so difficult to get under control Romesha is a great storyteller and there is a tremendous amount of intellect and self awareness in the telling I can guarantee you there are many journalists and writers who wish they had the knowledge and experience to write this bookAll of this brings me to my issues reservations about the book There is no doubt in my mind that this is a recounting of Romesha s experience and that he did a significant amount of research to write this book I truly believe this is his story and how he would tell it What I am having trouble believing is that he had the skills and the literary insight to put together such a cohesive and cogent book There is skill focus organization and articulateness to the book that in my mind says that he a lot of help in putting this together as in someone who writes for a living The only evidence I saw of this was in the Acknowledgement section where he says And I m grateful to the writer Kevin Fedarko for helping me find a way to tell this story Why didn t Fedarko get credit elsewhere Because if he didn t provide a whole lot of help to write the book it would appear that Romesha is some kind of literary savant The book is expertly done Also there was a notes section that was very vague and generic There is no accounting of where the facts came from Romesha says he flew around the country and interviewed and read other accounts There are many points in the book where the author is not present and could not know but no attributes I would hope a huge publishing house like Penguin Random House would understand the importance Thirdly this is a bit of a Conservative screed Almost everything is presented within a framework of absolutes very distinct heroes and villains lots of manly men whose bravery is demonstrated by their willingness to sacrifice even when they know it is feckless and foolhardy a slight rebellious streak that know when stop and fall in line etc There was a particular passage of shade that served no purpose in the book view spoilerbut an attempt to diminish President Obama Having no idea how to address the president Jones found himself at a loss for words as he shook hands with Barack Obama But later that night he d returned to his normal state of volubility The man had soft hands he reported which was apparently his main impression from his brief encounter with the commander in chief I mean real soft In fact I don t think there s any part of my body that s that soft This was almost a way of saying yeah you got the Medal of Honor but it was from President Obama so you have they have to redeem themselves by saying he wasn t as manly as they are Hard for me to imagine that if Bush or Trump had awarded them the Medal that there would have any comment at all besides how honored they were to receive it Seriously that unnecessary image was probably what docked the 5th star in my book They just can t help themselves hide spoiler Below the Surface Code of Silence #3 recipient Clinton

review Red Platoon 103 Keating had become a kind of backhanded joke  In 2009 Clinton Romesha of Red Platoon and the rest of the Black Knight Troop were preparing to shut down Command Outpost Keating the most remote and inaccessible in a string of bases built by the US military in Nuristan and Kunar in the hope of preventing Taliban insurgents from moving freely back and forth between Afghanistan and Pakistan Three years after its construction the army was finally ready to concede what the men on the ground had known immediately. It doesn t get betterWhyWhy do we keep making decisions like this I understand the idea behind a line of outposts to disrupt the enemy s sphere of control but how do you put an outpost here It doesn t get betterTo us that phrase nailed one of the essential truths maybe even the essential truth about being stuck at an outpost whose strategic and tactical vulnerabilities were so glaringly obvious to every soldier who had ever set foot in that place that the name itself Keating has become a kind of backhanded joke A byword for the army s peculiar flair for stacking odds against itself in a way that was almost guaranteed to blow up in some spectacular fashion and then refusing to walk away from the tableThe location the analysts selected was unacceptable by almost any yardstick you d care to measure it with Positioned only fourteen miles from the Pakistan border the site was ensconced in the deepest valley of Nuristan s Kamdesh District at a spot that resembled the bowl of a toilet It was surrounded by steep mountains whose summits went as high as twelve thousand feet and whose ridgelines would enable an enemy to pour fire down on the outpost while remaining concealed behind a thick scrim of trees and bouldersWhat makes this an even tragic incident is that the decision had been made to abandon the outpost and in fact the three platoons on site Red White and Blue were to be the last before the outpost was destroyed So close that some of the medical supplies had been boxed up ready to be airlifted outEarly in the morning of October 3 2009 the Taliban began a sophisticated multi pronged attack on the outpost pinning down most of the fighting positions around the outpost The outpost teeters on the edge before the first air attack is carried out by Apache helicopters Over time a tremendous amount of air support is called in and even included a B 1 bomber dropping 500 to 2000 pound bombsI have read many of these battle experience books over the last several years but this stands out for a couple of reasons First the sheer lunacy of the outpost positioning itself Second Romesha spoke with other members of the platoons before writing the book to provide a better overall perspective of the battle This book also seemed to paint an honest picture of the action and reaction of fellow soldiers Not everybody in the platoon got along not everyone was gung ho balls to the wall It seemed like a realistic view of the workings of a group of men put together in an almost impossible situation910
