Burma mission with Special Forces legend to help the Karen Army
Play • 48 min

In 2012 David went to Myanmar (Ancient Burma) with a former Special Forces soldier and Physicians Assistant (PA) named John with a call sign of BACSI (Thai for Medic). This journey would take them through the forbidden rivers and jungles into the heart of the Karen nation. The Karen have been at war since the end of World War II and have a small army of about 5000. They are fighting an army of over 500,000 and have been exterminated by the government for decades. In World War II on a specific mission the Japanese sent over 1000 soldiers into this jungle and because of the danger... NONE returned.

David and BACSI worked with the General of the Karen Army and he will share his personal experiences about this, the people, and what it was like to work with a legend in the Special Forces community.
