contend with, and in particular Sean’s story.
IN 2009, A JOINT MISSION TO CATCH A TALIBAN COMMANDER INVOLVING GUARD
SPECIAL FORCES AND AFGHAN POLICE TOOK A HARROWING TURN, BEGINNING A RACE
AGAINST TIME TO KEEP A
“The intel gathered by National Guard Special Forces Soldiers was
strong: A Taliban commander who was orchestrating ambushes and IED
attacks was using a building in a nearby village as a hideout after
attacks. The Soldiers had identified the building, formulated a mission
and trained Afghan National Police (ANP) to execute it. Now, they just
had to wait for the “high-value target” to appear.”

US Army Special Forces. MSG Clifton is currently a Special Forces
Intelligence Sergeant (MOS – 18F/18Z) with a SOCOM Detachment in the
Army National Guard. MSG Clifton has multiple tours of combat to Iraq
and Afghanistan where his primary responsibility was that of
Intelligence and Targeting Cell Leader on an ODA (Special Forces A-Team).
During his last deployment to Afghanistan, on May 31st, 2009, MSG
Clifton was critically wounded while conducting a raid on a Taliban
compound. Upon clearing a doorway of a Taliban leader’s compound, he was
shot multiple times by Taliban fighters. Two of the rounds were
critical; one hit his left arm, shattering the wrist and rendering his
left arm useless. Another round hit just under his body armor, entering
his left waistline, critically wounding 5 major organs to include the
sciatic nerve and major vascular damage. The medics kept him alive on
the battlefield and he then spent over 5 months at Walter Reed Army
Medical Center undergoing over 20 surgical procedures, which continue to
