An extremely positive reaction
The American public, while just as awestruck as we were, has not (fortunately) been rendered speechless. The video had more than 10,000 views within the first 45 minutes of posting on MARSOC’s Instagram account. That number quickly jumped to 100,000-plus views after being posted to MARSOC’s Facebook page. As additional Department of Defense social media accounts and viral sharing soon kicked in, the video was viewed more than 230,000 times in its first five days online.
