So DEVGRU (Navy Seal Team Six) killed Osama Bin Laden, and I say hats off, boys. As much issue as I’ve had with our overseas exploits over the past few years-trust me, working in a tattoo shop when there’s a war on is a rough job, unless you like to cry-this is a wonderful thing. I’m hoping against hope that the whole thing can be taken at face value, and I feel confident that it can be.
I don’t speak for anyone but myself, but if there was ever a time to reminisce about September 11th, 2001, today is the day. Some of our bad dudes, hard men who who walk into danger so that we can sleep in warm beds, did the world a solid yesterday.
As my good friend Tracy Heath, a former Army Ranger, has said on more than one occasion, if you meet a vetted/enlisted man or woman, just tell them thank you, and make damn sure you mean it.
