    Pretty cool story about a documentary film-maker who went through Royal Marine Commando training prior to being imbedded with them in Afghanistan. Tough old guy!!

    This man has the heart of a Lion along with some super mental strength. To push through this training with over 80% didn’t make the cut OUTSTANDING !

    Watched the video yesterday before work….hard to not feel his emotions at the end. This is quite a feat. Hats off to Chris!

    And the next “oldest” guy in his group was something like 25? THIRTY years younger. Not to take away ANYTHING from the 20-something year olds that made it (and even those that didn’t), but damn… 55 years old.

    Impressive, not only for the feat itself, but for the fact that a lot of his motivation was based in his respect for the guys he was about to be embedded with.
