My name is Mike Gillette, former Army paratrooper, SWAT commander, Homeland Security consultant, armed forces tactical trainer; current executive bodyguard, performing strongman and martial arts expert. AMA!
I posted a photo of my dad on Reddit (http://redd.it/1e7izb) and it seemed to get a bit of attention so I talked him into doing an AMA. I'll be moderating for him on Skype.
He's a rather interesting fella. Don't be shy.
If you would like to connect with my dad on Twitter, he is at http://twitter.com/gillette_mike
EDIT: I will be answering all questions verbatim in first-person. Just FYI.
