Al Roker, Commando

I generally pride myself on knowing all the prior military members on television. Guys like Drew Carey, of the Price Is Right, who served in the Marine Corps Reserve. Still, I was quite surprised to read that Al Roker was a commando. He revealed this little-known fact in a visit to the White House.

  1. I went through nine months of hell at the Commando Training Centre to become a Royal Marines Commando; and this guy poops his pants to become one in twenty seconds!

    The four elements of Commando Spirit; courage, determination, unselfishness, and cheerfulness in the face of adversity (no mention of ‘whoopsies’)?

    “Nurse, take this man out and have him hosed down, immediately”…

    Yours Aye.

    • Al Roker took the remedial commando class. What amazes me is that he admitted it.

      I have nothing but the greatest respect for you and your mates. Training like that takes real heart and soul. . .

  2. Admitted it, Navy One? I’d say the man resides in an alternate reality somewhere in the realm of lost things or ideas….it goes back to the view most Americans have today of revealing everything to everybody…who really wants to know this stuff in the first place, never mind the second without saying….eeehuw? And then again, who cares??….k
