This is the town I live in, I don't know him personally but my hunting friend does, it was all kept damn quiet until awhile ago.
I think this man deserves a nod.

The flight was uneventful, which is what one wants when one is transporting an Elephant.

    Wow! That guy was a bad mother.

    May he rest in peace.

    One of those heroes that don't get the recognition they deserved during their life. May he rest in peace.

    That's because the guy was a LION! I'm not much on RIP, I prefer to say DIJ (Dance In Joy) - the world's a poorer place without him.

    Fighting, successfully, in a sport coat and dress shoes, well done.

    I've seen numerous documentaries on the hostage rescue and they recently released a movie based on those events called 6 Days. The hostage rescue is still studied today and the events are certainly worth a movie.
    The world's loss is heaven's gain. RIP 🙏
