This guy is absolutely the real deal.
My name is Chaz M. and I worked under Tyler (Captain Pencek, call sign Bender) while serving in the Marine Corps. He was my officer in command for about 6 months while on deployment in Okinawa. Throughout my time serving with him he became a great mentor to me and all of my peers. Tyler had this “Crazy idea” that the most important lessons you can learn in life is not learned in school but actually learned in real life. It turns out, that idea wasn’t so crazy. I can’t begin to tell you how Tyler’s mentorship, advice and guidance over those 6 months helped shape the person I’ve become. He took it a step further and continued his mentorship to me even though he technically was no longer in charge of me. This guy is absolutely the real deal. He’s incredibly passionate and cares about educating people. Tyler and I have kept in touch over the years and he continues to serve as a mentor. I would absolutely recommend listening to his advice on everything this guy says, Tyler does not miss.
