When I first heard him speak, I was really surprised, his Cebuano is almost perfect for a “normally” white American, no trace of American accent when he talks.
According to information I gathered from the web, Sgt. Paul Palmeri is a Gunnery Sargeant for US Marine Corp (USMC).
He grew up in Cagayan de Oro City, his father Tom Palmeri used to be a professor in Xavier University.
So mao diay fluent kaayo iyang Cebuano, na tawo diay sya sa diri sa Pilipinas.
