    Thank you for the comments and the link Jason. I agree, “quitters never win, and winners never quit.” – no truer words have ever been spoken.

I also found a video of him giving a speech in new Orleans in 1991..This amazing man was full of humor and lived by duty honor and country check out http://www.davesdroppings.com and see first hand from the man himself

    Great film, great story, but most of all … great man!

    It goes to something I heard long ago that probably has meaning only to those who have served – “you join out of patriotism, deploy out of a sense of mission, but you fight for the guy next to you.”

    Tango-Mike-Mike exemplifies that axiom, and it is very fitting indeed that Special Forces have adopted that phrase to denote dire circumstances.

    Thank you for sharing this.
