Serious Motivation, MSG Roy Benavidez

Thought I needed to share this with all the other Candidates who might not yet have herd of this man. My friend sent me a link to his Wikipedia page and a clip from ******* with his Medal Of Honor speech. After learning MSG Benavidez's story, I think I trained harder today than I did all week, and I think I need to go PT again, like now.
Just thought Other 18xrays should know his story. I'm posting the link to the video below.

Hmmm, madgrunt...seems I've seen this somewhere before, but I just can't place it...

Nice vid though.

Let me add that you can read a lot more, for more inspiration, on this MOH recipient here:
