If you were involved in any such operations and wish to contribute to the details of what went occurred, join the discussion at the appropriate Green Beret Forum (linked below). If you have photographs, you can add a weblink to an image (or any) URL to the forum, but when I get around to pulling this off to a CD version, I will need to call upon you to get a hi-res version. Do NOT send the high res or even copies of the pictures to me at this time. I have divided the forum up in to several threads by Calendar Year. Title your discussion entry by the date (or dates) of the operation you wish to chime in on. Make separate entires for different operations. If the guides that I provide don't help you identify the date, come as close as you can. This is an experiment to recreate the after action reports for these operations (which, as far as we can tell do not exist). Let's see how well the internet serves to accomplish this task.
