I Wanna Be Like Mike S01E18

July 29th, 2017

War is a dirty job, but someones gotta do it. 

"At the onset of the Second World War he was interned at a Japanese internment camp. In 1944 he escaped, joined the Special Operations Executive, a British commando group, and was engaged in guerrilla warfare in Malaya".1
Eventually life brought him to Canada where he joined the PPCLI and soon after that he joined the war effort in Korea.

For decades the tale of his finest moments were kept quiet, for reasons unknown. Today Patee shares with us the story of Mike Levy; (adopted) Canadian Hero.
