Mr T

Better known as Mr T, Laurence Tureaud joined the Army in the seventies, and became a military policeman. And he was certainly good at it! In November 1975, his drill sergeant gave him a letter of recommendation, and out of a whole cycle of 6,000 troops, he was promoted to squad leader after being elected the “Top Trainee of the Cycle.” He was once given a punishment to cut down trees, without being told how many, and he cut 70 in only 3 and a half hours!
