The Fight Professor Cometh – Frankie McRae Joins Breach-Bang-Clear
We are chuffed beyond measure to announce that Frankie McRae, the “Fight Professor”, has joined Breach-Bang-Clear as a guest contributor.
Oh yeah, baby. He won’t blow smoke, so we’ll do it for him. This is a man who developed and ran the PSD class for USASOC back in the day. This is a man who was recognized and decorated for the record number and quality of SF students he produced while in charge of his schoolhouse (more on that below).
McRae, whom you’ve read before on this site in various Perspectives articles, now runs a training facility called 37PSR Gun Club about 30 minutes north of Ft. Bragg; he’s also the HMFIC of Raidon Tactics. He’s a retired US Army Special Forces 18 Zulu (Green Beret senior sergeant) whose primary job was 18D, SF medic, with a seconday MOS as an 18C (combat engineer). Frankie hails from a military family (two uncles were in 5th SFG). His Army career began at age 13 when he got hold of an SF medic handbook, but he wasn’t sworn in until a few years later, right around the time Iraq invaded Kuwait.
“My job is to train, advise, and mentor. Good Americans need to learn to shoot, we’re at that point. I’d like to work myself out of a job.” Frankie McRae
After his enlistment McRae went to the Ranger Regiment (1/75). He was an honor graduate of Ranger School, machine-gunner, team leader, and ultimately did RRD (Ranger Reconnaissance Detachment) selection and SFAS (Special Forces Assessment and Selection) in the same month. He went through the Q Course and was assigned to 1st Group (C Co, 1st SFG), was a CIF assault team leader, and eventually an instructor at SFARTAETC (Special Forces Advanced Reconnaissance, Target Analysis, and Exploitation Techniques Course), and was ultimately a troop sergeant major for 3rd SFG. He retired in 2010 after a tenure in USASOC’s R&D element.
During his extensive operational career, McRae helped JSOCTF Iraq stand up the ICTF (Iraqi Counter Terrorism Force), then worked with them, TF Black, and in other billets for a long time.
We’ll tell you more about him in the coming weeks, and we’ll talk about Raidon and Range 37PSR too. Right now join us in welcoming this admirable and badass American Jedi to the team — to say we are humbled and grateful to have him join us would be a gross understatement.
Watch for his first feature article very soon.
