QOTD: Jarhead edition

Sometimes being a hero means finishing last. 

This is in regards to a young USMC Lance Corporal that, instead of finishing and proving to his Army buddies that he was more physically fit, proved instead that he was more honorable by getting a really crappy time just so a young kid didn’t finish last.  Badass doesn’t mean you finish a fight covered in your opponents blood, sometimes it means you’re just a little humble.


  1. You mean Marine buddies? Let’s not demean this man by implying that he’s a soldier instead of a Marine.

    • Huh… for some reason I thought I’d read that he was running with some Army guys for this event.
