I wonder how many of them were serious, and how many were posers. I wonder if any of those posers ended up getting in way over their head?

I remember those ads. Barely. That was back when all the "I was there" columns were about the Viet Nam war, and the USSR was a big threat. Man, I'm getting old.

I'm sure a lot of them were posers. But some were real ,guys out of Nam looking for action.
I think the police did a sting or something with one of the adds and hired him to kill someone.
Thats when SOF said no more adds

I remember them well. Also remember some ineresting advertisements in the back for things like "Homeade C4" from common materials.

Not real C4 but it did blow up nicely.

I also remember very well that we couldn't have SOF on base back then
