ARLINGTON, VA—In recognition of the brave and altruistic Americans who risk their health and safety for the greater good, Pentagon officials announced Thursday that the U.S. military would honor the sacrifices of NFL players by wearing their jerseys throughout December. “Every week, these men are out there on the gridiron, putting their bodies on the line for our country. Having our soldiers wear these jerseys and caps is the least we can do to show our support,” said Pentagon spokesperson Robert D’Amato, who announced that all active-duty soldiers would be sporting gear from all 32 teams to raise awareness of the people who put their lives aside to preserve the American way of life. “These men leave their homes and their families and travel to cities across the country to uphold our nation’s traditions. They are battered and bruised for years, their lives often cut short while we sit back in our barracks and enjoy our freedom. Some of them are never the same after they end their service, and yet we take them for granted. Hopefully, this small gesture shows that the soldiers and officers of the U.S. military know who the true heroes really are.”

RUNNING STRONG: Alex Douglass, right, is the Pennsylvania state trooper who was shot in a 2014 ambush. He was having medical complications and finally had his right leg amputated below the knee. Earl Granville, left, lost part of his leg when his vehicle hit a roadside bomb in Afghanistan in 2008. An acquaintance connected the two when Douglass expressed interest in doing a marathon, knowing Granville had completed several since being wounded.

We are not raising a generation of warriors anymore.

Think about it. The warrior culture that was once celebrated and embraced even amongst the civilian population of old is now nothing more than a mere itch in the memory that must be scratched on patriotic holidays. Young men who want to be warriors have no idea what it means to be one and we aren’t doing much as a society to show them the way.

The military of today is no better. We are rife with political correctness, weak leaders and training that wastes time. We are inundated with paperwork and leaders are limited in the amount of one on one training they can give their men. We are no longer allowed to discipline young soldiers in a way that will motivate them to do better, and in doing so are relinquishing them to a painful death at the hands of an enemy who simply believe in their motive and right more than we do our own.

I want to talk about myself. Hard times make hard men and I was raised that way. I got in fights and broke things. Far from being the perfect garrison soldier, the dull rage that I felt and allowed to consume me as a teenager and young paratrooper is nothing more than a dull flicker of its former self. And I sorrow in that. That rage is useful for warriors. It motivates and directs and best of all, dulls pain. The sheer joy you feel and red color you see when a fist breaks your nose is God given…you were created to fight.

IF A LEADER IS AFRAID OF PERSONAL PHYSICAL ALTERCATION, HE WILL BE AFRAID OF TAKING RISKS ON THE BATTLEFIELD.

I think that the fire that burns in our souls and pushes our ship to Valhalla for those of us who are not living as the warriors we were made to be can be fanned and turned into a raging force. That dull anger and rebellion you feel when getting chewed out by a lesser man even though he may have rank on you is your lion…that lion will be fed. Next time your bite your tongue in the face of wrong for fear of personal discipline even though you know it’s right to defy, don’t. Open your mouth, speak your truth. A higher power has placed you on this world to kill and destroy and love and protect, so go forth and do.

Dead fucking last!
Started a 14 mile Spartan Beast course at 1:45pm and,
We brought a telephone pole, a cinder block, sandbags. Some of this guys had already run a lap earlier, others never touch a Spartan course.
Started as strangers, finished as family.
This is what it's all about, not a fucking medal.
To be continued...

What a journey!
From a DNF in Miami 9 months ago to completing all 3 courses required to earn a trifecta medal.
It's been a pleasure to see you push through what you believed was possible and commit to train to get here but, "here is just the beginning!
