"If I get out of this one alive, I will make this stuff the way it needs to be built so none of my buddies have to go through this," he remarked to a fellow operator. Upon entering the private sector, that's exactly what he did, making gear and packs in a garage, and growing ever since/

He was also give the "FIre in the Gut" award, an honor for exemplary effort voted by his teammates, the first time in history that both awards went to the same sallor". "I think that's the best honer I'll ever receive" he noted later,"because it came from the guys I went through hell with for 6 months in BUD/S Training. That meant a lot to me" Many of those former classmates now use his gear in operation acound the globe.
