If you don’t know who Brendan Looney is/was stop reading and look it up. It’s important to what follows.
Susan Katz Keating has a series of posts up that require something to be added.
The process of grieving has been described/defined in some detail. Navy Seals have short circuited that process in a way and that is of no small import.
The rest of us can follow the signposts, but these guys don’t have that luxury… Their lives, and our way of life depend on that ability.
I salute Brandon Looney AND the ritual.
