The Marine Who Starred in a Military War Movie. And Active Duty’s Gay Porn

davidbrad

We misidentify photos, misplace pronouns, and insert the wrong links all the time. So we can understand the embarrassment of Leatherneck Magazine — which bills itself as the “Magazine of the Marines” — after they featured a young corporal who just happens to be an amateur gay porn star.

nov09-Cover1

In an article about a new Marines movie that stars active duty sailors, a one Cpl. David A. Bradberry, the real-life (former) Marine and star of a few ActiveDuty.com movies, where he goes by his real first name. The porn industry website The Sword has some NSFW photo evidence, and notes that the article says, “For most of [the actors] this is the first time they have ever acted.”

Not David.

He’s starred in such memorable numbers like Battle Cry and Summer Recruits.

Why such a big deal? Besides an ostensibly straight (with DADT, all soldiers are presumed hetero!) guy being exposed for getting serviced by other men, among other things, the military has a history of firing ActiveDuty.com’s stars. (UPDATED. See below.) When a few of Fort Bragg’s 82nd Airborne division’s finest popped up on the site in 2006, they were dismissed. Another was let go in 2007. As yet, we’re not sure whether Cpl. Bradberry still has his job. But it won’t be long before everyone on the base learns of his extracurriculars.

UPDATE: An attorney representing Bradberry tells Queerty he received an honorable discharge from the Marines before starring in the ActiveDuty.com videos, thus removing any possible Article 125 (sodomy) violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

      And now the gay community has outed a Marine who will no doubt be brought up on charges and dismissed under Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

      Jason: You’re kidding, right? He’s the one that made the movies. He’s the one that knew the risks. Give me a freaking break.

      As far as “David” goes, he’s freaking amazing. He’s a total cock hound and proud of his sexuality. Dink uses him well on that site.

      David is ex-military – he’s said it himself on his webcam shows.

      This is such a non-story.

      He’s also credited as “David” in the (non-porn) military mag.
      This post should be retitled: “The Pornstar who uses his own (albeit, only first) name”

      @Mike Not kidding at all. Yes, he made the decision to make the movies. The same way that many lgbt service members make the decision to carry on relationships despite DADT. You would think that given the sensitivity of DADT that you would have the common decency to not plaster it all over the net, furthering the chance for him to get caught.

      First, let’s understand that Don’t ask, Don’t tell is one of the most archaic policies in the history of the military and will soon be dismissed when our Presidents grows some balls.

      Second, David is one hell of a great guy. Humble, personable and funny as hell. Few people are as open and honest and talented as this guy is. Anyone would be lucky to call him a friend.

      Third, this will be old news in no time. David just hang in there. Lean on D.J. and others for support. There are many of us who love you and screw anyone else who thinks otherwise. This is just another chapter in your life. You will rise about this better and stronger. So many of us truly, truly think you are a great guy.

      Maybe I missed something but from the article it looks like he was outed in the porn industry site “The Sword” not in any gay publications.

      According to all of the info in the original article, Cpl. David A. Bradberry is still part of the USMC. Regardless of whether or not he is still in the military, cases like this are constantly investigated by military authorities, why should we help them in the process? Why is it that people have no care in outing people? Who’s right is it to ruin the career of someone else’s and call it news worthy? Seems a bit backwards to me that while we are fighting to get rid of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, people in our own community feel its okay to help enforce it.

      I don’t think any gay site “outed” david. the man got paid to do gay porn and he didn’t hide his identity at all. i think he did a pretty good job of outing himself.

      I always wonder how helpful, if at all, Dink Flamingo was to those guys who got caught in 2006 (and any since). Read a story at the time about the Ft. Bragg guys, which pointed out that apart from being young, they make almost no money and are not terribly well educated, so they are easily convinced to do the video work. I believe those guys from ’06 were married, too.

      So, OK, they are at least 18, adults, and old enough to go to war. Dink Flamingo said he would look for these guys at Walmart. I just think that they are perhaps not mature enough to see past some easy money (albeit very little) at the potentially ruinous consequences.

      Yes, we are responsible for our actions, however, I think Dink Flamingo, who has made money hand over fist off these guys—his houses got progressively bigger over the years, and now he’s moved on to LA—has some culpability. If he’s not, he should be helping them financially, legally, whatever way that he can.

      SHAME! SHAME! SHAME on Queerty and The Sword for outing a Marine and most certainly placing his safety and future in tremendous jeopardy! It’s just totally WRONG! He’ll be brought up on charges, discharged and kicked into the gutter because of your vicious gossip blogs!

      @Ted B. MSGs are not posted in the US. I was one. My guess is he’s support staff at MSG school in Quantico. not saying he isn’t fit for MSG duty, but if he has this much time stateside, he’s not on the program. If his is in MSG school in preparation for becoming an Embassy guard, and this comes to someone’s attention, he’s gone for sure. Porn background is not really what they are looking for in the program.

      This is less about the gay angle and more about it being pornography. Porn, gay or straight, is going to get you brought up on charges. Hopefully he understands the risk he was taking.

      He’s actually quite … eager … in the videos. Definitely not a shrinking violet by any means.

      However I do wish your military would get is head out of its arse and accept that a good percentage of its personnel are gay/bi whatever and stop dumping good personnel for the sake of their in-the-sack preferences.

      The Brit military hasn’t crashed & burned (yet).

      Your not just outing this man but causing him to have to deal with issue that he might not be ready to face. Family, work, friends who do not know. What damage have all of these publicaton caused to this America Hero? He served our Country proud. And now for the sake of gossip these publicaton have made this man face a potential unsupportive family and work enviroment. And at what cost? Our own people did this, not David. There is a reason people do not list their last name in porn. But these publication find no problem with listing a publication that did. And all these publication are not culpable? There is nothing, nothing wrong with porn but unfortunately we are not Europe. This is David’s life to enjoy and live not for our enjoyment. He is a brave and honorable man who is enjoying his life until OUR OWN decided it wasn’t his own life to enjoy. He did nothing wrong since he is out of the services but so many of us sure live in glass houses. David, God bless you and the USMC. And for all those who published these articles on David how about you listing your home address for all of us. It is the same thing you did to David.

      What a total crock of shit. Anyone and I mean ANYONE that does porn (even under an assumed name) has to accept responsibility for what happens once the film is out there…you reap what you sow.

      Forgive me if I don’t feel one ounce of compassion for anyone that does porn and expects “no one will ever know it was me!”.

      Besides, I thought most queens idolize “porn stars” anyway…I mean, isn’t it what we all really want to be or @ least date?

      Yawn.

      The sites who reported on David’s starring in gay porn merely did the inevitable so they did nothing wrong. He shouldn’t have done the porn if he did not want to be outed. But he was out of the marines anyway so being brought up on charges is a joke.

      Some of you all have no idea what or who you all are talking about. This is a personal friend and fellow Marine who served our nation and the corps and got out. Let him do what he wants to do, and before you start posting information about what you THINK you know about the Marine Corps of the MSG program you might want to look it up and make sure its correct.

      It is nice to know that David has friends like you. What has become clear during this diatribe is that some members of OUR COMMUNITY can be extremely judgemental when it comes to someone elses life. Have you notice that not one sanctimonious person who was so quick to judge David has apologized?

      Nor has any of the publication stated that they were wrong, not just for listing David’s last name but to admit they got their facts wrong?

      It shows one’s character when someone can admit when they are wrong. We expect our family, friends, co-workers, bosses ect to be able to admit when they made a mistake but within OUR OWN COMMUNITY we have to many who act like the school yard bully.

      I have repeatedly ask each publication to retract their story. How many have? How sad is this! What is wrong with doing the right thing?

      I have never met David and only know him through Active Duty. The man has show grace under pressure, what a true Marine he is. Shawn there are many in OUR COMMUNITY that respect and honor yours and David service to OUR country. Don’t let those lacking this character to color your opinion. We are extremely greatful and proud of your service and wish you, David and all the other gay men and women of OUR military a safe and peaceful holiday season. David is lucky to have such a friend like you.

      Peace be with you.

      i was just informed of him being outted. i think he’s good. when he performs he’s really into it.

      if i had a wish, i’d want to white and young have his size tool and having all the gay sex like him.

      unfortunately, i have no success and watch time passes by as i age into gay oblivion. i no doubt feel loneliness and grief all the time.

      i’m glad he’s okay with being outted because he does good work, really good work! i wish i were more like him. i’m just another gay loser.
