chikm : just drink the water

Timboah : How did they get in the Marine without being able to swim?πŸ˜‚πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Mystic Rose : I wouldn't be nervous I'd be shiting myself

Colonel.Crockett : Seems dangerous... *Where do I sign up?*

Nathan Champion : All US Marines can swim even if it's just a little bit. It is a requirement to pass boot camp. At least it was when I was in from 2007 to 2011. All Marines also had to pass a swim qual every year after that too. I think those two were just nervous about being poor swimmers and trying to have a sense of humor about it.

Franklin Allen : Sometimes, because he is so mild mannered, I forget Destin is a bit of a badass.

a-person : Who else at least held their breaths just one or twice

Hey Hey : Don’t call them marines for nothing

Berg Sandsness : Thank you for the video, I'm a US Marine at Pensacola's water survival school and I'm doing the helo dunker in 6 days. This was a huge educational advantage for me. The video is great and a huge advantage for me, keep it up!

Bethany Haskell : That bit at the end about holding on to the truth you know until you can move towards the light was incredibly powerful for me. Thank you for the advice.

Ugly Person : This gave me anxiety

Cheeto God : YouTube recommendations you know

Good and Basic : What a powerful analogy. Thank you for drawing out the connection to holding on to the seeds of Truth. JB

Brainstorm : This is effing terrifying. But man is it cool to watch.

Life coach Jerry I wanna be like him : I would of been dead in 20 secs

willyamacaronie : What some people are ready to do for this country! Impressive, I could never

SeanHodgins : The first time I went surfing, I had just driven 3 days by myself across the country. I went to a surf shop and picked up a board. After some exhausting minutes learning stuff, I finally grabed a wave. It was a little bigger than I first though and it sent me flying forward into the water. It absolutely crushed me, shot me down to the bottom, and I remember my leg touching some rocks as I tumbled. The leash on the my ankle pulled my leg in the direction the board was headed and I had no idea where I was. There was no "up". Panic set in as I didn't have a chance to get a real breath before I entered the water. I didn't know where I was. I didn't know how to surface, I thought I was going to drown. Then suddenly I had this moment of clarity. I just told myself to sit still at the bottom, be calm, wait. I remember opening my eyes and looking up at the massive crashing wave above me, but where I was it was calm and quiet. I told myself I wasn't going to run out of breath immediately, so I took a moment to figure out the situation. I just relaxed and waited for everything to pass. I looked around again, the water above was calm. I swam up, grabbed my board, and headed for shore. I still think of this moment when I get overwhelmed by stuff. How I was able to just sit back and analyze the situation. This was one of the scariest moments of my life while I was entering the water, only to turn into one of the calmest I can remember to this day.

zac cincinelli : Guy with the beard sounds like he's fighting the urge to say man at the end of every sentence

Le Nuub : The beginning looks like a mission in FPS games

MindCrime : Marines have "swim week" in boot camp. You have to earn a swim qualification in swim week to be a marine.

Lorenzo Serrano : I wouldn't be nervous... I'd be signing a Marine resignation form...
