A new television ad is urging women to join the U.S. Marines Corps, reports The Hill.
The ad shows a female Marine moving through dark waters with an M-16 rifle, going through a submerged drainage pipe and shouting orders over the sounds of combat.
“I am extremely humbled to be a part of such a big production ... Professional actors can keep their jobs, though. I’d rather be a Marine,” said Marine Capt. Erin Demchko, a woman featured in the ad, told AP.
“The water was 27 degrees and coated with a layer of thick ice ... Giving the film production staff what they wanted, while maintaining my bearing as a Marine officer and trying not to look cold, was a challenge,” she added.
