"Hardness," I was learning, was the supreme virtue among Recon Marines. The greatest compliment one could pay to another was to say he was hard. Hardness wasn't toughness, nor was it courage, although both were part of it. Hardness was the ability to face an overwhelming situation with aplomb, smile calmly at it, and then triumph through sheer professional pride.
I am not, had no desire and quite honestly would not have had what it takes to be a Recon Marine at 18 years old. I am fortunate enough to have become a business associates, collaborator and friend of someone who spent 24 years as a Recon Marine, rising up to the rank of MGYSGT while being a legit badass.
Humble as can be, doesn't consider himself anything special (unless he's pissed then the badass comes to the surface). _
Bill @standforsomethingclothing is the yin to my yang as far as product message goes. Always positive, inspirational and badass. Give a follow, peruse the products and if it strikes you, support his business.
I found this for him yesterday to post and although I don't know first-hand, I imagine it rings pretty true.
