You know when you’re watching an intense war movie and there’s a badass commanding officer dominating the enemy? Well this is the real life General those characters are based on.
Marine General James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis is a retired four-star general serving in the military for 44 years. Throughout his decorated career his troops have known him to give some the most influential quotes motivating his Marines to the highest of standards.
Business Insider – “Mattis is something of a legendary figure in the US military. Viewed as a warrior among Marines and respected by members of other services, he has been at the forefront of numerous engagements.”
The General is currently in discussions on a possible job offer as defense secretary, and after reading his quotes, I can’t think of a better suited man.
