In this episode you will hear:
• I didn’t come here to get hurt. I came here to hurt you. (1:43)
• There’s 2 opposite ends of the spectrum in our community. What happened to me is the worst, and it lets you know how much we can take, and Robby’s [O’Neill] lets you know how great we can be.  (6:07)
• I probably cost the taxpayers a lot of money. (6:35)
• I remember walking onto a village and they’d never seen a white dude. You could tell by the look on their face. (9:09)
• Short of ray guns, we got all kinds of toys. You can’t believe it. (9:45)
• You look completely different when you climb on that bull.
• I could give you the world, but if I don’t give you any discipline, you won’t own anything. (13:25)
• When you step into the arena you’re supposed to be in, you light up. (14:00)
• If you’re standing there and there’s someone taking pain with you, especially if there’s other dudes dying, and they don’t go anywhere, it changes everything. (20:02)
• The greatest gift I ever got is when someone knows not only will I take pain with them – I’ll die with them. (20:10)
• A little suffering goes a long way. (20:52)
• Jumping on a grenade is the epitome of a servant’s heart, but he only had two seconds and that was his knee jerk reaction, because his brothers were in there. (21:40)
• Most of our life is picking on each other. That’s how you know they love you. (24:26)
• Once you get your ass kicked in the military – if you come back with a good attitude, that’s good. (31:28)
• Jocko took his boys in there. He would go out in the daytime and run an American flag to start a fight. He was like “C’mon bitches. You wanna start a fight? I’m here.” (33:12)
• The Navy owns us, but the Army and Marine Corps own the battle spaces, so when we get put in there it’s at the behalf of them. (34:35)
• If God puts an elk within bow range of you that is God telling you that is your elk for this hunt. (39:38)
• There is being humble, and then there’s being so humble you don’t use the gifts you’ve been given. (39:46)
• We all appreciate each other’s world because we appreciate how hard something is. (40:22)
• The perspective it (hell week) gives you in your life, is you can do anything. (43:54)
• There’ll be some stuff you go through that’s simple for someone, but difficult for you. (44:34)
• Everyone fails down here. That’s part of life. Get that out of your head. (45:55)
• There’s a big difference between training to fight and actually being in one. (64:09)
