Programming featured in this Sunday's SALUTE TO SACRIFICE is as follows:
9am ET - 10am ET
· RANGERS LEAD THE WAY They are the secrets heroes of US Special Operations command, conducting some of the most critical missions in the war on terror. They are the Army Rangers, and the stories of their amazing operations have been kept secret from the public until now. Former Rangers pull back the curtain on this elite fraternity of gunfighters as we examine their missions, weapons, tactics, and training. Then, explore the evolution of the Ranger Regiment from an airborne light infantry unit on steroids, to a tier one asset deployed by Joint Special Operations Command all over the world.
10am ET - 11am ET
· MARINE FORCE RECON Force Reconnaissance Marines are among the world's deadliest warriors. They specialize in sneaking deep behind enemy lines to gather intelligence and often take on the most dangerous roles in America's most ruthless battles. Now, former Force Recon Marines pull back the curtain on their secret world. These Marines push themselves, mentally and physically, to the edge of survival just to qualify for the job. We get an inside look at their extreme training rituals, follow them on deadly stealth missions in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, and get a rare glimpse into their top-secret expeditions around the globe.
11am ET - 12pm ET
· DELTA FORCE: TIER 1 The Army's most elite unit operates more deeply in the shadows than SEAL Team 6. Never officially acknowledged, Delta Force was formed as a new era of terrorism exploded globally. They are America's 911 call against our greatest threats, but their missions are never know to the public unless something go wrong. Now former operators reveal never before told stories of the unit's operations in Panama, Iran, Somalia, Afghanistan and Iraq. We examine their specialized weapons, training, and get a rare glimpse into current operations. Then, learn why this specialized unit was overlooked for the mission that killed Bin Laden.
