Last in this first series of Drunk Talks with Vets is Ryon’s Combat Buddy Samual Siqueido. We talk Guns, politics, parenting, veteran wives, what it is to be a grunt, the intensity combat infantryman have, and more. You can hear the night get a little louder and exciting as the night progresses! Squid’s phone died after 2.5 hours and we got him back on the line and talked for another 2 hours…I had to go to bed after hour 4 and then they wrapped up at almost 5 hours. IT got sloppy and they kept drinking! SO I wanted to add their good bye at the end of the get a glimpse into where their convo was and how sweet these rough and tough guys really are. Big ole teddy bears!


**We appreciate all branches of the US military (Every Generation) and MOS’ of each…this is just grunts talking shop:)
