I took him to mean not what he has done as much as what he has endured..and what he has endured with the Squirrel Busters is almost equal to what he put others through.. That is how I heard it and it bugged me..so today while doing house work and mopping the floors I piped in Marty SP times interviews and listened to 1-9 again.. Now another 11 to go.. I needed to hear it for myself and it had been like nearly two years since I listened last.
Marty is speaking the truth there.
You can can just see it. He was a battered person and couldn't even believe it while in.
