Last Known Activity|
Branch: Iraq War Veteran / Rescue Helicopter Pilot
I know, she;s not in the Military on the show, but that doesn't mean her soldier spirit retired with her. Don't cross her, as her partner Rabbit quickly found out when he almost killed her mimicking Bullit.
Moment in Badassness: It has to be when she popped a guys eyes back into there sockets after a car wreck.
MSC(SS) Casey Ryback, USN
Branch: Navy SEAL
Ryback is the Die Hard of military men, the monkey wrench in the plans of domestic terrorist. By land or by sea (by air, Under Siege III: Over Siege?) he�??s the guy you want riding with you.
Moment in Badassness: He killed bad guys with a microwave time bomb. How cool is that? [Do not try at home]
1) Colonel John Matrix, USA
Branch: Special Operations Operator
Remember when we trusted our men and women in the Armed Services with the moral authority to protect those that deserved sanctuary and eliminate those who threatened it, no questions asked? That was Matrix.
Moment in Badassness: Refusing to be a pawn, he snapped his captors neck and left him on the plane like he was sleeping!
Lieunant. Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, USN Branch: Naval Aviator
Everybodies got an ego and Maverick's could float the balloon boy across the world. Swagger is one of the key elements that makes any good soldiers and overcoming it is what makes any good hero.
Moment in Badassness: When Maverick buzzes the tower. Doesn't everyone want to do that? It's like dunking.
Captain Steven Hiler, USMC
Branch: Marine Corps F/A-18 Hornets Pilot
This dude took on aliens okay. He took on intergalactic terrorist and won. And just like US Soldiers, he didn't do it with home field advantage, he took the fight to their house and blow it to holy hell!
Moment in Badassness: After outmaneuvering and outwitting those alien scum-suckers, he went mano-y-mano and knock it's green teeth loose with one punch.
Now if you're wondering why they are all ranked number one, well there are two reasons:
1) Every man and woman in uniform is equally valued whether you work logistics or the ground, whether you sign up in times of war or times of peace and whether you fly sick people to hospitals or destroy alien races.
And 2) because I dare you to go up to any member of the armed forces and tell them they are No. 2.
Happy Veterans Day to all the real, most badass heroes in the armed forces and all those who love them!
Everyone else can go to whatever country has the audacity to hate us even though we have the coolest President ever.
