Dr. Sean McFate may very well be a top contender for Most Interesting Man In The World. Currently, he’s a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council and an adjunct professor of national security policy at Georgetown University. But before settling into the world of academia, McFate was a military contractor with DynCorp International. And before that, he spent eight years as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division. He’s raised armies in Africa, run guns from Eastern Europe, and jumped out of a perfectly good airplane more times than any man should. As a scholar, he hasn’t strayed from his military roots. He’s only expanded his purview. His area of expertise: grand strategy and war.
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.
