In a day and age where everyone is über sensitive, real men are under daily attack by the elitists.
Modern progressives seem to prefer manly women and effeminate men. But throughout history, the Warrior Ethos has compelled men and women to battle enemies in spite of fear.
My friend, Chris “Snowman” Sajnog, retired Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer, has lived this Ethos.
He was hand selected by Navy Special Warfare Command to develop the curriculum for the current US Navy SEAL Sniper training program. As a Navy SEAL he was the senior sniper instructor, a certified Master Training Specialist (MTS), BUD/S and advanced training marksmanship instructor.

But this article is especially for the men, and boys who will soon be men: our nation sorely needs men who are tough enough to stop all threats who would destroy their loved ones and their country.

This has changed society’s view of what it means to be a warrior and paved the way towards a society that now teaches our boys to be less masculine and more feminine.
Now, we’re so far off track that it’s even OK to choose what gender you’d like to be (“Sorry God, you made a mistake.”) – but not OK to train like warriors in an effort to defend…
