    Soldier of Fortune magazine to stop publishing after 40 years Long the beacon in the newsstand for those who yearned to meet interesting people in far off lands- and maybe get into a firefight with them, will fade away to digital only starting in April. Founded by renowned international man of mystery, Vietnam-era Green Beret Lt. Col. Robert K. Brown, "The Journal of Professional Adventurers" based in Boulder, Colorado will no longer appear in print form moving forward

    Today, there are hundreds of thousands of men and women working overseas on various contracts and making good money, probably two to three times what they can make in the United States. On top of that, they may even be eligible for the foreign earned income exclusion, which in 2014 meant that the first $99,200 of their total income earned overseas was excluded from being taxed at the Federal level (it’s higher for 2015). However – and I can’t emphasize this enough – they are earning it! Naturally, the best-paying jobs are in high-threat environments such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria,...

    Like most things unapologetically conservative and unapologetically pro-American, Soldier of Fortune magazine has been pilloried for years by the organized Left’s venomously anti-American press and culture. But SOF, founded in 1975 by decorated Special Forces veteran and lifelong adventurer, Lt. Col. Robert K. Brown (USAR - Ret.), stands out as a singular example of American exceptionalism in print media. But that the rest were half as good. SOF is more than that too, for unknown to most people, Soldier of Fortune magazine and its staff of intrepid reporters – almost all with special operations backgrounds, some who paid the ultimate...

    So you’ve decided to run away and join the French Foreign Legion? Here’s how. It's Earth's version of taking the Black and heading for the Wall, the way Jon Snow does in Game of Thrones. Joining the French Foreign Legion granted men a safe haven for many for decades. But what does it actually take to join the French Foreign Legion? • Joining the Legion The Foreign Legion, unfortunately, is portrayed in pop culture as packed mercenaries and vagrants — even Jean-Claude Van Damme takes up the cause in one film. A safe haven for men looking for a new...

    I sent the following article to Soldier of Fortune Magazine it was sent to me by Freeper RedDaring. It is the famous 1987 article where Ward Churchill claims to have taught the Weathermen to build bombs. In the same story, Churchill claims that he worked for Soldier of Fortune Magazine and that the editor, Lt.Col. Robert K. Brown, USAR (Ret.) verified his military record. Article: This is the Colonel’s response: “Frank (Soliton): Thanks for forwarding this to me. I had not read this article and as for me checking that scumbag's military record, that's a lot of bullshit just...

    The March issue of Soldier of Fortune magazine features a story titled "America's Border War." The teaser on the cover calls it "War on U.S. Southern Border," beneath the one for how Marines and Army soldiers are preparing for urban combat in Baghdad. At the end of the four-page article, the publication indicates that there will be more next month, including magazine staff taking part "in the armed patrolling of our southern border by concerned citizens" and how a Soldier of Fortune "advertiser-equipped tactical team" interdicted drug-traffickers. The story features photographs of Mexican army soldiers, and asserts that the Mexican...

    SOLDIER OF FORTUNE • APRIL 2002 Command Guidance Just A Reminder by Robert K. Brown I pulled this off the web and do not know who the author is. However, it struck a chord with me and in this time of “political correctness” I think it addresses a subject that few in the media are willing to deal with. I’d like to hear from SOFers regarding their take on the subject, pro or con. — Robert K. Brown, Editor/Publisher There are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some native Americans, need to...
