He comes from a family of veterans. His father and brothers are all veterans. Mr. Dorsey grew up in Texas and was enrolled in U.T at the time he enlisted into the Marines. He decided to join the war simply to help and serve his country. With his extensive athletic background, he graduated top of his training class. To him the physical training wasn’t difficult, it was the mental training that made sure you had a good mindset that challenged him. After he returned from his time in Vietnam, Mr. Dorsey quit his current college major and pursue a fine art instead.

This interview shows how far Mr. Dorsey’s love for his country goes. He has a semi-mellow tone when talking about his past experiences in the war. Overall, Mr. Dorsey has a great personality and his experiences can teach us all something.
