Ex-NFL Lineman Joins Marines
"I wanted to be a part of something that is going to live forever instead of getting trophies"

Private First Class Jeremy Staat, formerly of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders, Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams and the Los Angeles Avengers just graduated from Boot Camp at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego, California.

“The big reason [I joined] was because I was just really disgusted with the amount of money entertainers get and what they pay troops overseas,” said Staat. “It didn’t seem right that we pay all those entertainers millions to catch a football and we pay our Marines pennies to a dollar to catch a bullet.”
