There is a breed of man, the ones that I have known have been the quiet type. A respected expert in his field.
By now, everyone has heard of Marine Gunnery Sergeant Burghardt. Here is a man that in spite of his injuries, got up and walked away from the scene. His reaction, while not typical in polite company, shows the resolve of a man who will not be beat. The picture of him “keeping up international relations” will have men fighting to buy him a beer anywhere he goes.
Gunny, this one’s for you
