    I've watched a few of his videos. He seems like a troubled individual who needs the structure and discipline that the Legion can give. I don't dislike the guy, and I wish him the best.

    When I see someone with that many tats I think "mental illness". Man or woman.

    I wish him well.

    He suffered angry young man syndrome and both a hard charger and self destructive kid, who is both honest and open about it, and offers some advice to others who may deal with same. I'm passed all that, but know the "syndrome" well, and I enjoyed his take on it, and most like him are dead or in prison. A few, find an outlet for it and work through it, and make it out the other side to a realized adult man. In his case, seems like he's on his way to being a realized adult man. He's offering a good message for those who need it, and interesting info on the FFL journey.

    I'm not sure about the whole " Troubled Young Man" thing.
    To me a young Man is 16-17. If you're not keeping it together by 18, you're a troubled Adult.

    My Dad made it pretty clear to me at 14 that if I sh1t on his door step, the Cops and the Law we're the least of my worries and if I ever went to jail I would stay until I served my time.
    I can attest to you he was not F'ing around.

    Not to quibble, but a "man" and a "young adult" are often the same. Be different if they tried to call him a "troubled kid."

    I'm glad you have your shit together, you were lucky to have a good father. Even with good parents, not everyone has their shit together. I wouldn't want to dog pile this guy as I don't know if his problems come from an inherent immaturity or an inability to reconcile himself with the things he's seen, things he's done. Having been NSW he's probably done some things and has certainly seen some things. Some people are equipped to retain their perspective and keep doing the job, but I'm not gonna blame anyone who can't.

    I like the Japanese perspective on things like "hero's", they celebrate even those who tried and failed because they consider the motivations and personal character to be identical. Basically if a guy runs into a burning house to try and save some children, he's a hero even if he fails to rescue them and doesn't come out alive. So without any additional information, I see a guy who wanted to be a Seal and succeeded and for whatever reason needed to move on. So long as he didn't F over anybody innocent I'm gonna not judge him too harshly.

    That job certainly isn't for everyone and LOTS of people think they want to do it.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Buddy of mine was in his BUD/S class and they graduated SQT together. From what I know he’s a good dude who had a rebellious streak and got into mischief here and there. Nothing ever serious but a lot of dumb drunken frat boy activities that landed him in cuffs on several occasions. He’s putting out content for other young men who are at risk of going down the wrong path and trying to steer them straight. Can’t hate on the guy for that.

    Someone who learns from their mistakes and tries to help others avoid the same, actually impressive.

    I'd view anyone under 25 a young man but would expect most to have turned the corner of "angry young man" syndrome by then give or take a few years.

    Trust me, my Dad had his moments, but he was no Saint.
    When he finally left we all breathed a sigh of relief.
    Yes, he gave me the tools to transition out of childhood, but on the whole sitting here now in my early 60s, he was an okay guy, but no role model by any stretch of the imagination.
    No one at 13 should be driving their drunk Father home.
