For those of you following along, the independent movie being made by Ranger Up and Art 15 clothing has done extremely well in its fundraising cycle. It easily made its initial goal, and with three days remaining has more than doubled it. If they get to $700K, they promise to add CAS and rotary wing air support to the final product.
So the boys at Range15 made their initial goal easily. They are now within fifty K of their stretch goal of half a million dollars. If they get it, they get Marcus Luttrell and... well, see for yourself.
Well, anyway the boys are having fun with it. And why shouldn't they?
If you like the brand of completely inappropriate veteran humor seen regularly in Ranger UP's videos or Mat Best's fake rap battles, you will love the opportunity to help them make a movie.
With Dakota Meyer. And Tim Kennedy.
Our good pal Tommy Batt Boy is down at Fort Benning for the Best Ranger Competition. Since Uncle Jimbo and I were down there with him and Tim Kennedy (and remember Jimbo's interview with Chaplain Jeff Struecker?)...saw Tommy post this.
So I told him that I'd donate $200 to the USARA if we got a photo of him wearing the Chuck Taylors in RangeUp Ranger Panties at Benning. I offered that a photo taken somewhere on the Darby Queen would be awesome.
Then, Ranger John Tackett, an exponential badass of the Ranger Up Work Out Video Fame, chimed in with a match if Tommy takes that photo on top of Ungawa!
What say you!? Let's get Tommy, who (let's face it) has no shame when it comes to raising money for great organizations, do some really immature shit...for charity...and our amusement.
Put your challenge to Tommy in the comments. Join me in a match. Donate to the USARA.
Here's the link to the video of the story from the BBC - patch shows up at about the 1:10 mark.
Marine Corps Staff Sgt. John Freeseha begins singing the Marines' Hymn after completing a plunge into freezing water during an ice-breaker drill as part of Winter Mountain Leaders Course 1-15 at Levitt Lake on Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center in Bridgeport, Calif., Jan. 30, 2015.

Or Combat Units vs Support...whatever you want to call it...
Well, the Marine Corps Times thinks it's a big deal.
Is there a problem in the Marine Corps...? This NSFW video via FunkerTactical obviously shows that there is no problem AT ALL.
Have some appropriate motivation. NSFW, unless your job is awesome.
