Editor’s Note:  Brandon wrote this nugget about one year before Demo Dick Marcinko left this mortal coil on 25 December 2021, one of God’s chosen Frogmen. I’m running it again today because it’s a great story and an introduction to Marcinko’s interview series on SOFREP TV, a must-see. — GDM

Think you’re a badass? I’ve got news for you: there’s always someone badder, meaner, and not afraid to punch you in the face to remind you of it. “Demo Dick” Marcinko is that kind of guy.

As a SEAL, Dick would deploy to Vietnam. He would then go on to founding SEAL Team 6, the same unit that years later would kill Osama bin Laden, the most wanted terrorist in the world. Dick’s childhood is equally impressive. If you haven’t read his book, Rogue Warrior, go read it.
