A great hero, I will complete the post later.

He was wounded 4 times, including the loss of an arm and an eye. So when X Bandera of Legion was founded it was called "Millán Astray" and included in their emblem was the arm and the eye which refered to the fierce of the founder.

That is a hell of a tradition to live up to my friend. He knew the meaning of Semper Fidelis deep in his heart.
