I remember him from when I was stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, where he was the Chief Combatives Instructor for the FATC. This guy was a monster and he had to be legit, for the Sergeant Major of the Army – SMA Richard Kidd to come to Ft. Sill to meet with him personally to discuss military combatives training. Hope his character isn’t being attacked here, this guy was the real deal!
1. Never heard of him.

2. Don't care.

3. Who are you?

4. Sounds like you are trying to sell snow to Eskimos.

5. If your claims are true then can you please link some of these articles so I can read about a "real deal" soldier? I've always heard of guys like him, and it would rest my soul knowing that this hero is not just a marketing gimmick. Invite him to the boards as well,,,,

6. Oh, and the character now being attacked is yours.
