are you a warrior?

A fellow LEO over at Trigger Pull Tactical posted this piece titled, Are You A True Warrior?

Webster’s dictionary describes a warrior as: “A person who shows or has shown great vigor, courage, or aggressiveness, as in politics or athletics.” I laugh as I type this because I just know some pussy who’s never held a gun, much less shot one, wrote that definition. I laugh at how society of today terms a warrior as a politician or athlete. I’m not taking anything away from our modern day athletes, but just because they fly around a football field hitting each other ruthlessly, that doesn’t make them warriors. The NFL and other sports sure as hell are not war. I cringe when I hear some overbearing, self indulgent athlete talking about the WAR on Sundays! They have no idea what it’s like to wear a uniform and bullet proof vest then go out to patrol Kabul, Baghdad, New York City, Chicago, or L.A., not knowing if they’ll come home that night.

Now go read the whole thing.
