This Veterans Day

November 11 is a day Americans set aside to honor all veterans. Today I’d like to recognize a buddy of mine, SgtMaj Jim Lanham of 3rd Bn 6th Marines. We served as 1stSgts together in 3/3 and was well known as Ol’ Jim Lanham, the Rugged Tennesean.  In those days he was likened to a one man public affairs officer where he enjoyed a whirlwind bromance with Ralph Peters

Below is a video of the Rugged Tennesean dispensing combative wisdom to his Marines who are currently confronting the forces of evil in Marjah Afghanistan.

Burt Lancaster? I’ll let you be the judge. I can confidently tell you with a fighter like Jim Lanham backing them up, 3/6 will do alright.

Take care brother, and come home soon.

Semper Fidelis,
America’s 1stSgt
