James Cordea, U.S. Marine Corps | Sports Reporter / Contributing Correspondent
Staff Sgt. Cordea served in the U.S. Marine Corps and was active from 2000 – 2005. James deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. He was meritoriously promoted to Corporal after 14 months, and was promoted to the rank of Sergeant after 4 years. Raised in London, James now resides in Brooklyn, New York. A heavily-tattooed aspiring herpetologist who enjoys a Red Stripe (or 12) on the beach, James is never without a rude joke. He’s the funny guy in your Iraq convoy and he’ll gladly join you for a drunken singsong at a pub near you. Listen to James on Lima Charlie’s weekly sports podcast #2Marines.
