Roy Boehm, THE FIRST BAD-ASS, dead, 84

Roy Boehm of Punta Gorda, a cantankerous retired U.S. Navy lieutenant commander who fought three wars, started the Navy's first SEAL team and shared his harrowing adventures --and his battles against military bureaucracy --in an autobiography, has completed his last mission.

A true American hero. They don't make'm like that anymore.
