He is what he is, a bad ass frogman. Popeye is a master at maritime and VBSS operations, as he should be. His DD-214 shows an enlistment date of 1929. At first we thought it was a typo, but it shows awards from the landings at Normandy, to pirate interdiction in Somalia. He was a plank owner in UDT, the SEAL Teams, as well as ST6. A corncob pipe and a can of spinach are his constant companions. He’s as salty as they come, he even salts his coffee. Beware the old man in a young man's profession!
