Bob "Ninja" Poras has us wondering where he got his call sign. He spent most of his career in the shadows. Some days "AWOL", but most of them fighting as the tip of the spear with 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment–Delta (1st SFOD-D), and eventually - working for the CIA as a GRS operator.
He covers lessons in leadership and the perfect grenade toss while operating in Panama during 'Just Cause,' his first brush with the same Delta squadron that would later be his own. We later learn where the famous trope "this is my safety" originated from. We wrap up part one of this two-part series with Pablo Escobar, Bosnia ops with German GSG 9, and more.
