An interesting paper was initially written by Edward V. Badolato, Executive Vice President for Homeland Security in 1980 when he was student at the US Naval War College in Newport. The guy has an interesting history, he began his first of several tours in the Middle East in 1967, shortly after the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War, when he was stationed on the Golan Heights. He was one of the first US military to actually deal with emerging Middle Eastern terrorists. He spent three tours in Viet Nam serving mainly with infantry and long-range Marine reconnaissance units. During his career, he commanded every sized Marine unit from platoon to regiment.
