Beards mean many things for different people. Today Nick tells us about what it means for him. Where are you from? I am from Clarksville, TN. How long have you had your beard? I medically retired from the army in February this year, shaved for the last time In August. Best thing about having a beard?? It's pure masculinity at its most genuine. Only a select few men can even grow a beard. Natural selection. It stands for freedom and a civilian life. Best advice you could give to anyone starting off growing a beard? Suck it up through the itch. Eat a good protien filled diet. Vitamins are your friend. Good shampoos, conditioners, and oils are your best friends. Want to be on our site?
