Did you do something stupid in combat and barely lived to tell the tale? Did you inhale freon from an air conditioner just before an enemy attack on your FOB? Did you call in an airstrike on the moon or kill a jihadi with a sharpened toothbrush? Want your story featured in a book full of other Joes who did the same stupid shit? Graybeard books, a blood brother of Blackfive, is compiling an anthology of funny stories from warfighters that will be published in 2016. Hit us up if you've got one.

This is so choice! The groove is on.
Here are some awesome videos. [Reality videos after the "jump" (ha, I kill me).]
In order to send the Air Force some love, there were two USAF Pararescue (PJs) HALO jump videos which are shared below and then one rockin' compilation video after the jump that's a must see:
I swear, that @#%& is better than a cup of coffee...
Jimbo posted these before:
Oh man, that was fun. I don't care whether you have or haven't ever jumped out of an airplane, this is a great look at it. I think what it reminded me most is exactly how much of a giant bag of shite on a rope you are on a static line jump. Even so, I still felt the rush.
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.
