many of the PMCs have lowered standards for private PSD work in Iraq and Afghanistan gents....gone are the days when all the PSD Operators were Rangers, Green Berets, SEALs, Air Commandos, Delta Soldiers, Force Recon Marines and Corpsmen.

Now you see guys who were regular Army/Marine Infantry, Army/Marine Combat Arms and MPs, Civilian Tactical LEOs, etc etc.  Good time to go after high paying contracts
