307– F.E.A.R Part One – Not A Lion, Not Even a Sheep

307– F.E.A.R Part One – Not A Lion, Not Even a Sheep

Sean Carnell is a Marine Corps Veteran. He has borne the cost of serving our country physically and in spirit. Seeing how the cost of service affected his fellow Marines and friends he started looking for a way to make a change so Veterans wouldn’t have to go through what he is still going through daily.

How does Sean Whalen fit into all this? Sean Whalen, amongst other things, runs the apparel company, Lions not Sheep. In 2016, he told a bunch of people including Sean Carnell that they had won a trip to Utah to go on an outdoor trip.

Sean Carnell and other Veterans were excited to get to go on a trip where they could relax and enjoy the company of a person, who at the time, was having a lot of success with his brand, Lions not Sheep. Sean Whalen never came through. Recently the FTC assessed a $211,335.00 judgment against Sean Whalen for making his apparel in China, then ripping out the tags and sewing made-in-America tags inside his apparel. We got a real American hero here folks. (Sarcasm intended for full effect).

Some might say Sean Whalen’s lack of follow-through is not a big deal. Quit whining, quit complaining, but to a Veteran suffering from PTSD, it is another promise broken, it raises questions if anyone truly cares. It was at this point in 2016 that Sean said enough is enough. Maybe others wouldn’t follow through on what they said, but he would, and now F.E.A.R. is underway.

Keith and I liked Top Gun Maverick as pure entertainment but had some bones to pick for sure. What do you think?
