To top off the video, Mattis then called for the ice water — roughly 10 gallons of it — which was poured over his head by an unidentified person wearing a Chesty Puller mask and a woman who appeared to be Christie Brinkley. The dousing lasted for almost a minute with the water and ice cubes cascading down over Mattis’ head and body, as the general remained completely still and quiet.
Several moments after the soaking ended, Mattis looked around. “Is that it?” he asked. “Jesus Christ, I do that every morning before I shave and brush my teeth.”
Sources confirmed that after the video was filmed, Mattis threatened the camera crew and told them to leave his house immediately, or else he would kill them all with nothing more than his knife hands.

It makes me sad that Mattis is retired and Amos is Commandant. I think Chesty would approve of Mattis. Does anyone think the same would be true of Amos?

Having had to personally deal with Amos during the Iraqi war, I will bite my tongue in the faint hope of exhibiting the better part of valour.

I think y'all will like the next commandant :p
You don't see many Marines of his caliber, and I have a generally (pun fully intended) high opinion of Marines.

"...I have a generally (pun fully intended) high opinion of Marines."
Ruh roh! I wonder how a certain Paternal Parental Unit feels about that.

The three big problems are finding a Chesty Puller mask, getting some of Christie Brinkley's time, and getting her, Mattis, and the ice together. I suspect the mask is the hardest part ... will we be seeing the video before Saturday?
