Default Video suggestions

Hmm, we have threads for fiction and non-fiction books, movies and television shows, but couldn't see one for short videos such as found on youtube.
So, here one is...

First suggestion for those with a strong stomach is this: https://youtu.be/0Yf5frBI4lg
"War Surgery - An Introduction"

(GRAPHIC medical surgery filmed at Peshawar, 1988 by the International Committee of the Red Cross)
- Emphasizing that:
Delayed Primary Closure of Contaminated Wounds Saves Lives.

This film shows:
General Principles
Lower Limb Amputations
Facial and Perineal Injury
Skin Grafting
Fasciotomy
External Fixation
Skeletal Traction

"It is a sad fact that at the beginning of so many wars , doctors dealing with the injured often have to re-learn the principles of war surgery. That re-learning is at the expense of the victims of war.

"This film is an introduction to the management and treatment of war injuries. This filming was done in a hospital far from the fighting. Few fresh wounds are seen and the vast majority are very much older than six hours. The injured often have to travel many days."

"The principal of the surgery is to remove dead tissue widely, ideally preserving as much skin as possible."

"The nature of war surgery, where the patients present late, is by nature the surgery of contaminated dirty wounds."

A documentary I haven't finished yet (~90 minutes) is "Operation Odessa"
-- from Showtime, but currently on Netflix.

I think "Miami Vice" bleeding into Tom Clancy may be the best way to describe it. In the 90s, when everything ex-Soviet was apparently for sale, some drug-smuggler-types attempt to buy a submarine.

There are interviews with the 3 principals and the DEA agents who were investigating them (and brought them down, I think).

Well, if it's detail you're looking for, you could do a lot worse than checking out The Chieftain's channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCp4...jie44iZroCb99A

Came across this on youtube. Not often you see a Trident on Army BDUs.
Navy SEAL who became a 160th SOAR pilot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TOmDADh6U0

(Just don't let any munchkin players see this.)

Not sure how uncommon it really is (not saying it is supper common), as I have personally known three Soldiers who have a Trident. One was a recruiter for the Army Guard, One was a Green beret, and the last was one of my team leaders in EOD.
