i thought my buddy was making this up...jesus...how do you still have all of your teeth? Hooyah instructor M!
I don't need to date one, and I have dated plenty of Alpha males, plus being married to one. I have the highest, and I mean HIGHEST regard for what these guys do. All I'm saying is that the ex-ploits are more appreciated (for me) when not bragged about. Leave it to books, or commentaries on CNN. That's all. Why be so defensive?
You are missing my point. When I read Brandon Webb's book "The Red Circle" I couldn't get enough of it. I wish I had left it at that. OF COURSE they should have fun. You are talking to a Nurse Practitioner who has worked in every type of non-combat traumatic specialty. "Gallows" humor is a necessity. I just don't think this type of heroism needs to be flaunted, or bragged about. The book did none of that.
My Dad came up through the ranks from WWII and the Korean War. He retired as a Lt Cmdr in the Navy (the highest rank he could achieve as a "Mustang"). I read and will continue to read your books (Brandon, your's is the best so far) for one of many reasons - to try to understand what my father went through during that apocolyptic time, and why he was such a dfficult (to put it mildly) person to live with. I would love to see a different aspect of you all, other than the idiotic, infantile behavior you exhibit on these tapes! I can now understand why my gentle, kind, and gentile mother, threw an asstray at my Dad when he was early in his career!
I am disappointed about
how moronic and immature you guys sound. I am so grateful for all of the sacrifices you have made for this country, but when you get down to it, you ENJOY this, and it's all about YOU.
@PollyAnnRose There are no beta males in SOF. Thank GOD.
I just had a very scary thought...A few years ago the NAVY SEAL performed at an Air & Water show in the city I work for. I had the privilege of driving the SEALS to various locations in my department issued Crown Victoria...My God I am lucky I dint hear "1 2 3 4, I declare a CROWN VIC WAR"
My guess is at the end of this series, Osman whips out a roll of ordie tape and every body dogpiles Pat. Who gets choked out by Chris O, then comes a happy hat.
@Old PH2 This is why I keep my conversations with Brandon electronic only. They eyes in the back of my head have atrophied over the years...
@KineticFury Some time I have to tell you some of my coon huntin' stories. No gun has ever injured any member of my family but that's just superior evolution at work. Oh, and beer is a dirty word round my family, we drink whiskey. Beer is for lunch and when your thirsty after workin.
I do believe you just set a bounty for the cellphone pic of the next MP with a suction cup arrow to the head. So there you go New Guys, the bar is set ;)
I don't care how old you are when ever you pull up to the Base, or even better cross the quarter deck on a ship every drunk monkey tries to pull off a straight face. We where hauling back one of my PH buddies "Marty," he was so drunk and violent we clamshelled him in two robertson stretchers and stood him on his head as we carted him across the quarterdeck. Normally you can't transport someone like that but this guy would not sober up and it was the last boat back as Shore patrol was rolling up to leave port. Should have heard him yelling as he stood on his head while we asked for permission to board. Great memories.
@Old PH2 I have so many "...and then we pulled up to the gate guard" stories it's not funny. You could launch an entire website on this topic.
@Tango9 That's not how the back seat works ;)
@Tango9 Chris lives to choke people out...I don't think it would matter where you sat. Best to be the DD I think...
@PatrickM Dude I have stories about hitchin around bases that would scare the black out of Idi Amin.
