Update: November 14, 2019. I’m a behind the scenes kind of guy so when GQ called me to be in front of the camera, I was incredibly nervous—absolute trepidation. Three weeks later and over 5.5 million views, the messages of encouragement, love and support have been profoundly appreciated. I try to read everyone of them and respond if I can. Sincerely grateful to GQ for the opportunity they gave me. Hope we can do it again in the future. And thank you all for watching.

Original Post—To clear up some misconceptions 1) No, I was not dishonorably discharged. Honorable discharge after eight years as a Marine infantryman 2) yes, after the military I gained weight. War and depression will do that and I’m working on it. 3) I did not serve in Iraq, I served in Afghanistan. 4) a correction is needed, I was incorrect to say the lower receiver of an M-16A1 was made by Mattel, it appears I was taught a myth while in the Marines, which is also not uncommon. 5) I did not know what movies or scenes would be shown to me, so everything was off the top of my head. 6) Thank you to everyone who enjoyed watching the video 7) if you didn’t enjoy it, that’s okay, no hate here. 8) I can’t control the sound of my voice, apologies for that.

Kid online: Plays call of duty once. Comments: "He is wrong, and his voice isn't deep and scratchy, so he can't be in the marines!"

Half of the dudes hating on his voice are sitting in bed while their parents pay for them to smoke weed and get a liberal arts degree

*outrageous abuse in the military*

“Yeah, that’s accurate.”

As a former Marine myself, you did a fantastic job and represented us well. I have also struggled with my weight and depression after I got out. This is extremely common and not often not talked about. Semper Fidelis brother.

The fact that the most disturbing movies on the list, is determined by an actual Marine to be the most accurate speaks volumes.

People talking about his shape..look at the forearms. There's "Back in my day, don't test me" strength there.

He's kind of like Michael Cera's cool older brother

Author — Fred Zeppelin


This is definitely one of the greatest "someone breaks down something" I've ever seen.

Author — Nicolás Zalazar


He sounds exactly like Michael Cera, how could anyone hate his voice

I think the white background in the first clip was just artistic intention to convey a sense of sterility and emptiness.
