About Max

Hello my name is Max Garcia.


I recently retired from the Marines in 2019 to pursue life coaching and inspirational speaking. Somewhere between my 3rd combat tour and my time as a Drill Instructor I developed a huge passion for helping people overcome adversity and achieve the impossible.  Previously, as the senior enlisted Marine for the largest operational battalion in the Marine Corps I’m comfortable with and routinely speak to groups of over 1,000 people. Shoot me an email and let me know how I can help you individually or make your next event unforgettable!



Max Garcia joined the Marines in 1994 as an Amphibious Assault Vehicle
crewman, later becoming a Drill Instructor in 1999.  In 2003 and 2004, he
deployed twice to Iraq with 3rd Assault Amphibian Battalion and was awarded
the combat action ribbon, and a medal for Valor from General Mattis who was recently
