This story has been floating around since 2004, but very few people had actually seen the picture of Danny Boy in his Marine dress blues until he put it in his latest book. Dan Rather reminds us of M. Larry Lawrence who, claimed the right to be buried in Arlington because he had had served in the Merchant Marine during WWII and had been injured. In fact, he had avoided the draft and never served.
Dan Rather, Larry Lawrence, etc. etc...
You seem to enjoy posting your own material.
How comes it to be that you don’t post the whole thing?
Fake Russian Election Hacking
Fake Bush Texas Air Natl Guard Memos
Oh, give the newbie a break. At least this time he posted the correct link.
His first post used the main url, but not the specific article url.
In the time he SAID he was in there were only TWO ways to get out:
1. Piss your rack numerous times
2. BE A HOMO
Hmm...which of the two, or did he make it all up..?
Back in the day there were over 20 Jarhead Freepers here who took this up and diseected it in TEN MILLION WAYS.
I have my share of issues with W, but he earned his wings and the fighter.
When you go to pilot training, you don't graduate and receive your wings unless you have skills (today, females are a different thing altogether).
Even more so, back in the day, we didn't “give” you a century-series fighter unless you have skills.
If you aren't smart enough, quick enough, lack judgment and do not have “hands” (inherent air sense and skills), you do not fly fighters, especially a century-series fighter. Quickest way to kill yourself is to be put in a century-series single-seat all-weather/day-night fighter. No mistakes allowed.
We don't care who your daddy is.
Not. Going. To. Happen.
