Marine Sgt. Jacob Way spent more than a year of his life creating a new video game called "I Shall Remain," according to the Marine Corps Times. The game pays homage to the Marine Corps in many different ways - which might sound surprising, considering the game takes place in a post-apocalyptic world filled with Zombies. But according to the game's trailer, the main character is a Marine:
It turns out that this main character,Capt. C.J. Hodges, is named in honor Cpl. Craig Hodges Jr. - a real Marine and friend of Sgt. Way - who died in 2010.
Way also modeled a lot of the main character's heroic traits after his former superior, Capt. Tyson Ackermann. Ackermann told the Marine Corps Times:
Members of Congress and veterans leaders called for federal action to absolve the debts of nearly 10,000 soldiers in California alone who have been ordered by the Pentagon to repay enlistment bonuses a decade after they signed up to serve in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The state reached a $252,000 settlement with two contractors over the companies' unlawful evictions of 18 military service members and their families from private military housing in San Diego and Orange counties.
