    I never knew this until I ran across a post and then verified it out.

    Anyone that has seen Battleship will recognize him.

    Col. Gregory D. Gadson. The man is certified badass, smart and lets nothing stop him. This is someone people should look up to. He is retiring after 25 years active service.

    I knew he was the real deal, had heard about his career b4 seeing Battleship the very first time in theaters. He's still the real deal....if he says it can be done, then it can! :D

    Yeah, this man is a badass and a true hero. Looked up his credentials shortly after finding out he wasn't an actor per second, but a veteran after seeing Battleship. Guy's the real deal.

    Did not know about him besides Battleship.

    Awesome to know he was the driving point in the Giants upset win in Super Bowl XLII.

    Battleship is a great movie! It has an Iowa class battleship in it. It's a popcorn flick, fun to watch and you don't miss anything if you grab a snack and take a leak.

    I knew a lot of the guys on the Iowa were veterans, but I never realized Gadson was as well.

    Just thought it was something cool to share.
