    This guy really wanted to join the Marines

    A guy shed 140 pounds so that he could join the Marines.

    Topping out at 330 pounds, Ulysses Milana was rejected by Army and Navy recruiters. But Marine recruiters worked with him as he lost about 20 pounds a month.

    的t was really hard. You see all your friends drinking beer and you池e like, 前h, man, I want one,白 he said. But his determination kept him on track, and he would head for the gym or don a head lamp and go out for a run.

    That's pretty cool. I'm glad to see someone lose weight and serve their country.

    What really stood out was the recruited that spent time with him during the year helping him with his plan, that is good stuff.

    That's pretty awesome! I don't have the drive myself to join something like the Marines, but major respect to anyone who does.
