OMG. Did not know Ray said this, but ngl pretty much fits him. #LoveRayPerson
In early 2008 while HBO was completing post-production of its adaptation of Generation Kill, Corporal Josh Ray Person was among several Marines hired to work as technical advisers. Now married and living in Kansas City, where he manages a blueprint shop, Person’s arrival in Los Angeles was eagerly anticipated by actors from HBO miniseries. They expected the wild-talking Humvee driver whose off-color commentary fills Generation Kill. Instead, they met a stolid Midwesterner, with not a lot to say. (After Generation Kill was published Person explained to me, “I did talk that way at that time, because I wasn’t sleeping and I was, you know, invading a country, but that’s not how I talk if I’m at home talking to my grandma”). When several actors took him out to dinner Person politely listened as they talk about their struggles to re-adjust to “civilian life” after playing Marines during the film shoot in Africa. Some told him they now really understood what PTSD must be like. After the actors left him at his hotel, Person finally had to speak up. “What’s up with those actors? Are they a bunch of pussies or what? Fuck, when I came home from Iraq, all I wanted to do was go to Disneyland with my fiancée. What kind of pussy gets PTSD from acting in a movie?"
