When UFC and MMA veteran Tim Kennedy announced his retirement from the sport in January, many people believed that his life journey would head back to the world where he feels so comfortable - war.
Today, Tim Kennedy officially announced (although he said he last week on instagram what his plans were) that he would be reenlisting in the U.S. Army. He said today on Fox that the decision was based off the change in military leadership from President Obama to President Trump, and he praised Secretary of Defense General James Mattis and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster for their leadership thus far. Kennedy said that the military "got our teeth back", after seeing how the Military handled Isis last week with the largest bomb being droppped.
Kennedy will deploy within the next few weeks, and although he couldn't say where, he said that he would in fact get the chance to fight terrorists, something he genuinely loves to do. He has publicly welcomed Isis to come to his home in the U.S. and has been more than openly critical of the Terrorist Organization, and truthfully, they should be worried. He has said numerous times that the thing he was put on Earth to do is to fight in war, and I couldn't be more proud to call myself an American when I see people like Tim Kennedy.
Tim Kennedy joined the Army in January of 2004, and by 2007 he was a member of the Special Forces Group. He deployed overseas multiple times, and served almost every role possible, before transitioning from active duty to the Texas Army National Guard in 2009 to serve in the position of Special Forces Weapons Sergeant.
