Stan E. "Stanimal" Braxton
There are men who have a determination of spirit that transcends the aspirations of most. These men answer a call, which comes deep from within the essence of their own convictions.
They share a kindred amongst themselves and though never spoken, its' strength exceeds the power of any outside ideals forced upon it.
The sacrifices made from their ranks are great, and each loss falls hard among those who remain. Yet they continue, knowing each time they step into the sun, the rays that penetrate their souls are the voices of their comrades leading them on to the next adventure.
