Dissolving MARSOC now, he said, would be a huge blow. "This would set us back two decades, if not more," Koumalatsos said. "It's not the world we live in anymore. We're not lining up tanks and we're not lining up in trenches to fight a conventional battle."

Nick sat down with Josh Honsberger, former teammate and Marine Raider for a question and answer podcast. We discuss training for selection, married life as a Marine Raider, what made Josh and I join the Marine Corps, what made us join Special Operations, and what means more to us the EGA, or Raider badge?
If you were going through life doing the bare minimum, that is what you’re going to get in return. You’re going to get the bare minimum return of life and that’s not the way I live my life and that’s not the way that the people I surround myself with live their lives. The bare minimum is just that, minimum. I want to maximize my return on everything. I want to maximize my return on business. I want to maximize the return on relationships. I want to maximize my return on physical fitness. What do I have to do to get the most out of everything can.
