My strict Roman Catholic-altar-boy upbringing set me up for an unconventional life of deviance, discipline, sex, violence, parties, adventure, and service to others.It’s a weird combo, I know.After many years spent as a shy, timid, insecure, easily-bullied, nerd; I grew into the narcissistic, outgoing, overconfident, revengeful, violent, egotistical, lovable nerd that I am today.On paper, my life looks like an actors career, so with that notion I’ll summarize the phases of my life with short character bios.Catholic altar boy in New York city.Nerdy, horny, goofy kid in North Carolina.Nerdy, horny, goofy kid in San Diego.High School Football benchwarmer.High School Football 3 way-starter.Horny, scrappy, revengeful, high school rebel without a clue.Hyper college freshman at San Diego State with the worst acne you’ve ever seen.Twice voted, Sigma Nu Fraternity president, who was ultimately fired by higher powers.Volunteer High School Basketball Coach, with a losing record.

My parties have been responsible for more unwanted pregnancies, relationship breakups, divorces, arrests, broken noses, born-again-Christians, and lawsuits than Jerry Springer can fit into 3 seasons; and yet my friends and family can’t get enough of them.I believe that mean people need to be punched in the face, killing bad people is the same as saving good people, and that being nice to people is everyone’s duty. I encourage all nice people to beat up an asshole or a bully at least once in their life. It’s like chicken soup for the soul.I love sticking up for people with disabilities, victims of bullying, victims of domestic and sexual abuse, gay men who are afraid to come out (I have gay cousins and they hid for years) , obese and insecure women, and minorities who get discriminated. (I am half a spic and am frequently the victim of minority discrimination) I enjoy doing this because I know how good I felt when someone else stuck up for me back when I was a little pussy. (I’m still a pussy)I have reformed my old ways when it’s convenient for me, and I have now dedicated my life to taking care of my grandma, entertaining veterans, and writing funny stories about all the awesome, shameful, lustful, revengeful, violent, terrible, and wonderful thing

This brutally honest book is a Marine Infantry Officer's account of his thoughts and actions during combat in Afghanistan, including his lust for killing and sex, his desire to beat his boss, and his burning desire to win a game of "gay chicken" at all costs. Written for enlisted guys, this book will shock military historians and senior officers, but will resonate with those who have experienced the reality of combat. It's a raw and honest portrayal of Marines who love killing more than they love anything else, and are tired of having their reality hidden from the public.
