Jim’s shirt confused me at first–I thought it was a Chinese character or something on his shirt front at the panel, then I thought it was some weird duck, but a close up makes me think it’s a 50th anniversary of the Navy SEALs (that was in 2012, so they’re 53 years old now) shirt. American flag on left shoulder.
edit: jimcaviezelfan tagged it as being Seal Team One’s logo, so thank you!
that “””pro””” asshole in every game: we need a healer we need a healer someone switch to healer we’re all gonna fucking die in this match if we don’t get a healer come on you fucking idiots
Someone else: if we need a healer so bad why don’t YOU be a healer
“””pro””” asshole: …What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in MLG school, and I’ve been involved in numerous competitive matches on every game known to man, and I have over 300 confirmed kills in every match. I am trained in offense and sniper classes and I’m the top sniper in the entire server. I can’t be a healer because the other team is nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe them the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting the admin and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. As this class, I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, even if I only have four abilities. Not only am I extensively trained in this class, I have admin access to the server and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment about me switching to a HEALER was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
Warrior Wednesday: Navy SEALs (Sea, Air, Land) Lt. Michael P. Murphy, 29, from Patchogue, NY and Sonar Technician — Surface 2nd Class (SEAL) Matthew G. Axelson, 29, of Cupertino, Calif, taken in Afghanistan. Both assigned to SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team ONE, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Murphy and Axelson were killed by enemy forces during a reconnaissance mission, Operation Redwing, June 28, 2005. They were part of a four-man team tasked with finding a key Taliban leader in the mountainous terrain near Asadabad, Afghanistan, when they came under fire from a much larger enemy force.
We got the opportunity to talk to three members of the Navy’s Parachute Team – “The Leap Frogs” after their jump into X Games Austin this afternoon. Check out the interview below with Brandon (SO1), Timmy (SO1), and Duncan (Lt. [SEAL])
How was the jump today?
Brandon: It was great; we were up at 6,000 feet, going about 120 mph. We could see the skyline of Austin, and then below was the X Games crowd. We loved hearing the crowd cheering.
When and how did you join the Navy?
Brandon: 2008. I was going to college and was wondering what to do – do I stay in college or join the Navy? My family made me finish, but I knew as soon as I was done I was going to enlist.
Timmy: 2005. I enlisted after a year of college. I knew I wanted to be a SEAL. I went to SEAL Team One after all my training and had four deployments while there. I just got back from Afghanistan and joined up with the Leap Frogs early this year.
Duncan: I started at the Naval Academy in 2005. I followed a friend of mine from growing up to the Naval Academy and learned about Naval Special Warfare while I was there my freshmen year. Every year there are 25 available billets to BUD/s for seniors and I knew that’s what I wanted.
When did you jump for the first time?
Brandon: Part of our training regimen is called SQT – SEAL Qualification Training. While we are going through that program (it’s before we go to a SEAL team) we got to free fall school for two months. While you’re there you jump anywhere between 25 and 50 times. You get familiar with rucksacks and combat equipment, oxygen, etc. Our graduation jump includes oxygen, a weapon, a rucksack, and it’s at night, with your team. Once you accomplish that you’ve finished free fall school.
What was going through your head the first time you ever jumped?
Brandon: A funny joke we tell is that most guys jump with their eyes closed, so it’s like a night jump. Then when you open your eyes you realize it’s day time and you pull your canopy at the last moment.
Duncan: All I thought was “Pull my canopy, pull my canopy, pull my canopy!”
Timmy: I went through emergency procedures in my head the whole time.
Why did you choose the Navy?
Timmy: The SEAL teams were the number one pull for me. SEAL = Sea, Air, and Land, that aspect of being able to do it all.
Brandon: Same reason. For me it was trying to find the program that I thought was the most challenging for myself, and it seemed like the Navy SEAL program was the best to challenge myself to the fullest extent.

Jim’s shirt must’ve been gifted to him by the US Navy Seal Team One (patch on his left sleeve) who he trains with. The patch on the left front on Jim’s reads Brotherhood (Fraternitas) in Latin, it usually says “Gonna Face Justice”. This patch symbolizes the pride of the DEVGRU by killing Bin Ladden
The N stands for Neptune, the Cross stands for Knight, the Spear stands for the Seals abilities on Land, Sea and Air.
I doubt they give this to anyone. Love ya James Patrick.
