The good folks at Ranger Up have put together a short video promoting their brother-in-arms, Staff Sgt. Tim Kennedy. He’s fighting for the Strikeforce middleweight title on Aug 21, and Kennedy has been getting more and more attention as the matchup with Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza approaches. But After Action ranks this video as the most interesting piece of media produced thus far.
As you probably know, Kennedy is a Special Forces operator who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan and currently serves in the Texas National Guard. You don’t often hear him talking about specific experiences he had in war, but the final minute or so of this video gets pretty emotional as Kennedy describes fighting in a three-day ambush in Afghanistan.
