How about this?
The Next Big Thing From The Producer Of "SURVIVOR".
COMBAT MISSIONS is the most grueling physical and mental TEAM competition
It is a competition exclusively for America's Elite.teams of Special Forces
veterans from the ranks of such organizations as the Navy SEALS, Delta
Force, SWAT, and Army Rangers.just to name a few.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD TEAMS. If you serve or have served on any U.S.
Special Force or Law Enforcement Tactical Unit, and can put together a team
of four (4), WE WANT YOU. If you are a qualified individual wanting to be
placed on a team, we want you, too.
When our COMBAT MISSIONS are over, only one team of true heroes will
remain.still holding the flag.and a fresh crisp tankful of official U.S.
*Applicants can apply as individuals or as one member of a team of four(4).
Preference will be given to those applying as a team of four (4).
While it is PREFERRED that individuals or team members currently serve or
formally served in the same Special Forces (as defined below), it is NOT
required. As long as individual male or female team members meet the
