Marine Corps Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis himself once said, "You can't allow people to avoid the brutal facts. They start living in a dream world, it’s going to be bad.”
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
And no one knows that better than military service members and we have the pictures to prove it.
