Matt and Niki talk to Colonel Scott Conway, career Marine Officer, who shares his experiences of service, leadership, and combat.
Scott wanted to serve since he was a kid, and ultimately decided to become a Marine and attend the Naval Academy.
The Naval Academy emphasizes leadership, academics, athletics, and time management. It throws many big fish in little ponds into the ocean, so to speak, and produces many of the officers who end up serving in the US Navy and United States Marine Corps.
Scott shares his experience going through the Naval Academy, some of his service in the Marine Corps, and the experience of going through an ambush--and the emotional dump afterwards.
Scott ultimately turned to endurance during his career to bolster his fitness. He found benefits from this, but more recently combining strength and conditioning has led to a greater control than he’s ever had. 30 years older than his students, he can lead by example and garner respect when he walks in a room by his image and presence.
“If you stay ready, you ain’t got to get ready.”
