Limited Edition M81 slings are coming back! But this time, sales are going to help out one of the best dudes we know. Some of you may know of him already. But if you don’t, here is @wolf_forty’s story:
"As far as I can remember, it has been my lifelong dream to be a SEAL. When I was in 4th grade my father pulled me out of school to go see my uncle and the “SEAL Base” in Coronado for my birthday. He told me I couldn’t wear camouflage, which I did daily. We got to the base and he walked in to get our visitor badges. I had a set of Woodlands in my backpack and changed before he got back. Then we went into the 1st phase office where my Uncle was an instructor. The Chief of the cell asked me, “What do you want to do when you grow up?”. I said, “I want to become a Green Beret (Rambo was my favourite movie) or a Navy SEAL.” He said, “a Green Beret?! Go get him wet and sandy!” Everyone started laughing (except me)."
"Later in life I accomplished my goal of being a SEAL and was assigned to the west coast teams. I was at my highest point physically and mentally and living my dream job. Then, during VBSS training I fell from a helicopter landing on my head. Shortly after, I sustained a second traumatic brain injury on an oil and gas platform. Neither TBI’s were career ending, but while in the hospital, Doctors found something else. Through brain imagery I was thought to have cancer. With further workup, a spinal tap showed I had in fact what appeared to be the early stage of Multiple Sclerosis. After going through a SOCOM trial of MeRT treatment my symptoms skyrocketed. I couldn’t even write or at times speak, I would forget things like my phone number. It was the hardest time of my life."
"Symptoms now tend to come and go but seem to be getting progressively worse. My complete treatment plan consists of both conventional and integrative medical strategies including stem cell therapy.
My end goal is still the same as the day I was medically retired; get a medical waiver and go back into the Teams. Presently I’m far from that, but still keeping the hatchet sharp in case."
