Another misfit joining the society, we are a group of individuals coming together and understanding we are not alone, thought of by some as outcasts, the strange ones. I have often heard the phrase why would you want to do that....why do you want to run that far at 04:30 In the morning...why are you in the gym at 22:00 doing those crazy workouts, why jump out of planes why, why, why ???? I will tell you WHY NOT.. to challenge yourself to understand your limits and push past them, to discovery your inner most fears and say F**k you... THATS WHY.... to grow as a individual we need to surround ourselves with like minded individuals and that's where The Misfit Society comes in. We are seen as Misfits "someone who's behaviour or attitude sets the apart from others" but as Misfits to one to each other we are a family... #rltw#army#usarmy#royalmarinescommando#commando#airborne#gym#fitness#ifyouknowyouknow#motivation#outdoortraining#outdoorfitness
NEW RELEASE FROM SIMON SMITH

Simon’s immersive portrayal of the first day of Operation Market Garden depicts glider borne infantry from the British 1st Air Landing Brigade, early in the afternoon, after successfully securing ‘DZ-X’, the drop-zone on Renkum Heath several miles to the west of Arnhem. Overhead paratroopers from the 1st Parachute Brigade begin their drop from USAAF C-47s.
In remembrance of the fierce battles at Arnhem and in tribute to all those who served during Operation Market Garden, each print in the edition has been personally signed by veterans who fought bravely as the Allies pushed for victory in Europe during WWII.

It’s been a long journey. I’ve only scratched the surface in having been able to open up about my experience in the military, what it meant to me, and how I’ll never again be the person that I was. In trying to say anything now about this part of my life, I’m flooded with so many mixed emotions. It’s been 8 years and I still have a very long road ahead in terms of processing my trauma. It wasn’t all bad though. I met some pretty incredible people, I reinvented myself in a profound and beneficial way, and I learned some powerful lessons about life, loss, duty, mindset, and seriously hard work. I live at quite a distance from the armed conflict I was all too familiar with, in exchange for every day being its own battle. The search for purpose, the constant guilt, chronically feeling out of place and misunderstood, the unspoken emotional scars, and the intimate courtship with death and dying. I hang this shadow box in my home now as a daily reminder of how far I’ve come, how much I can accomplish with the right resolve, the right tools, and the right team, and as a reminder to embrace that I am different, and it’s my responsibility now to give back and push forward in the ways that only I can.
It’s not about pride, or self pity, or grand tales of bad-assery and BS heroics. It’s about acceptance, forgiveness, and finding a way forward. #veteran#army#woundedhealer#combatveteran#shadowbox#military#medals#invisiblescars#airborne#lifeaftertrauma#mentalhealth#makingpurposehappen#differentisbeautiful#itsokaynottobeokay#veteranlife#militaryservice#shareyourstory
What is freedom worth for you?
These weeks are a lot about freedom in the Netherlands, since it's 75 years ago that market garden started in the Netherlands. This Saturday we'll have a lot of guys jumping like it happened in 1944, as a memory about how hard fought the freedom was in the Netherlands. Thousands of English, Canadian, polish and American lost their lives during this attempt to free the Netherlands quickly. They where warned about about the presence of two ss armored divisions by the Dutch resistance, but they where still willing to give their lives for others who where under oppression. ..
