He called me a while ago, and was just telling me the story of what he did - he did not know there was any significance to it, just they way he is....he went on a 12 mile ruck march, (with a 40# backpack to carry) and they had 3 hours in which to complete it, or they would not pass the course. Jon is now 6' 1", and has been telling me how he runs circles around the other guys, because he works out and runs on his own, as well as stuff they are required to do. I asked him how he did on this march, expecting him to tell me he was somewhere near the lead, as he always has been...and he said, no, almost dead last. And I asked him why, and he told me, because he was staying behind with one of his buddies, who was having a hard time making it and he was encouraging him to keep at it. They had two minutes to spare. I could just cry typing this.
