There are few people on Earth that people from all walks of life would collectively consider a “total badass.”
Much like a question on Family Feud, the top answer would be debated across popular football players and MMA fighters. Others, may wax nostalgic like Mike Tyson or Bruce Lee. Some may go the way of pop culture and argue for someone in “Game of Thrones” because they don’t get out much. And then, the real answers show up around numbers 5 through 7.
One of them will unquestionably be “a U.S. Marine,” “Special Forces,” “Green Berets,” or my personal fave, a U.S. Navy SEAL. No debate. No reservation. Just a simple “yup” does the trick, thank you kindly.
So, what if I told you there is a SEAL…who is openly gay? Did you just bump into a glass wall throwing papers up in the air because yeah, that happened.
