Ladies and gentlemen, meet 37-year-old Tim Kennedy.
Kennedy is a number of things, but the word “patriot” appears to describe him best.
In 2003, Kennedy enlisted in the United States military under the 18X (Special Forces candidate) program, through which he later completed multiple combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan as a Ranger, Green Beret, and Special Forces sniper, according to Kennedy's website.
During his deployments, Kennedy received several military awards, such as the Army’s Bronze Star Medal with V device, which was awarded for valor under fire.
It was also during his time in the military that Kennedy got seriously involved in mixed martial arts. He soon became a professional as part of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
It turned Kennedy from a mean, green fighting machine to a lean, mean fighting machine.
It was also during this time that Kennedy left the military to focus on his UFC career.
After a series of wins and losses in the octagon, it became clear to Kennedy that he wasn't done serving his country yet.
And in April, with a little convincing from new President Donald Trump, Kennedy decided to leave the UFC and re-enlist in the U.S. Army Special Forces.
While Kennedy says that he doesn't agree with everything Trump stands for, he loves that the POTUS “likes to win.”
He also became inspired by the fact that Trump selected Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis and National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster.
While speaking with TMZ, Kennedy enthused:
“I'm pumped to work for those guys.”
But what he's most excited about is killing some terrorists.
Accompanied by an intense photo, referencing the recent MOAB, Kennedy wrote on Instagram:
"If you are lucky enough to kill a Special Forces operator, the possibility of us dropping the biggest non-nuclear bomb ever made on you should be the least of your concerns. There is a vengeance and wrath associated with the loss of one of our brothers. May God have mercy on your soul because we are coming and we will have none to give.
The U.S. Military."
According to Kennedy, he's getting ready to deploy within the next couple of weeks. And wherever the Army decides to send him, he told TMZ that “it's a dangerous place and he'll be there to fight terrorists.”
One thing's clear ... no one's likely to get in the way of this soldier.
