When Men Were Men: Capt. Ronald Speirs, US Army

Captain Ron Speirs, US Army

 

In the morally bankrupt/no testsosterone/limp dick times we live in it is important to remind ourselves that once upon a time there were REAL Men that populated the ranks of our Military.

Captain Ronald Spiers is one of my personal favorites of the Band of Brothers Series.

The Foy Battle scene (Episode 7: The Breaking Point) is EPIC!

 

Reject Modernity and Wokeness, Embrace Strength!

The Amazing Story of Colonel Percy Fawcett

What the Hell Happened to the Man Who Mapped the Amazon?

 

Since I was a kid I have had a fascination with Explorers.

In partcular, Explorers of the Amazon.

As a writer people like Colonel Percy Fawcett whose life seems to blend myth and reality has always been a driving inspiration for me.

If you have not read the book The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon, I recommend it highly.

Bad-Ass Files: Remembering SAS Legend John McAleese

John McAleese’s story is one of a true modern day Spartan.

The man was an absolute beast when it came to early Counter-Terrorism Operations.

John’s life continues to inspire millions.

The character of “Captain Price” in the Call of Duty Video Game Franchise is based looely on his life and exploits.

 

When Men Were Men: Tom Crean

Tom Crean

 

Tom Crean was a gigantic Irish farmboy that was built like a concrete machine gun bunker, and whose primary talents generally involved his ability to drink, fight, and carry insanely heavy objects over ridiculously long distances without complaining too much about it.  He enlisted in the Royal Navy at the age of 15 as a “Boy, Second Class”, served 27 years in some of the most brutal environments on the planet, performed heroic and unbelievable feats of human strength and endurance, survived weeks and months in some of the most ferocious, unforgiving environments on Earth, received a chest full of medals for heroism, exploration, and scientific discovery, and participated in nearly every major expedition from the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration.

Then he came home and never talked about any of it.

He’s basically everyone’s Badass Grandpa who went out into the world with nothing but whatever bullshit he had in his pockets, did some Man Shit with his life, and then came home, met a nice girl, and never talked about any of the insane things he’d done with his life.
