Branch: U.S. Navy SEAL
What does honor mean to you?
To have honor is to have a backbone. To know who you are and what you believe in. To have Respect for those who have fought for you and your way of life. To be willing to stand for those beliefs and die for them if necessary.
What will it take to win Maximum Warrior 3?
I believe the master of the basics will have the best odds of winning. I believe physical strength is mandatory if you want to come out on top. However, I believe mental strength is more important. The cool, calm, and collected outside the box thinkers should have the upper hand.
Which attribute in your military training gives you an advantage over the competition?
Most all of my military training was a competition. I can't say that my training was better than any of the others. I don't know these operators and I don't know if we share similar training backgrounds or not. I can shoot. But all these guys are probably pretty good. I can drive, but am I the best driver? I surround myself with exceptional operators and I try to bring my skills up to par with their skills. I believe having the support network that I have is my biggest advantage at this time.
What do you think it will be like competing against 9 other Special Operators?
Every day in the Spec Op community is a competition. So it will probably be like a week at the range with my buddies. I look forward to getting to know the other operators and I am interested to see how everyone differs in tactics and techniques. Should be awesome!!
