Lcpl Boudreaux' cardboard sign (from Iraq) was real

Apparently, this sign is real:

According to the Marine Times:

Boudreaux is a reservist with Headquarters and Service Company, 3rd Battalion, 23rd Marines, according to Capt. Jeff Pool, a Marine Forces Reserve spokesman. The New Orleans-based infantry unit deployed to the Kut area of Iraq in May and returned home in mid-September.

Pool said the command began an investigation shortly after it received the photo via e-mail several weeks ago.

Investigating officers have spoken with Boudreaux and are working to determine whether the claims on the sign are true and what, if any, charges to bring against him, Pool said. Investigation results were not expected to be released for another week or two, Marines Forces Reserve spokesman Capt. Patrick Kerr said April 8.

I think you're right. I see the stone wall between the two boys. Looks like that perhaps was the original background...or at least it was put there using Photoshop. The photo was altered.

The wall is also behind the Lcpl's legs. I agree th background definitely looks altered, it wouldn't be surprising, then, that something else had been also.

Now drudge is posting a new link with the title:
"The real photo?"

it links to this: http://www.imagedump.com/pics/59682.jpg

"saved and rescued"

Unfortunately, I think the "killed/knocked up" photo is the real one.

Look at the letter "d" they are consistent only in the killed/knocked up photo.

Bad joke. Lcpl is in trouble.

My Apologies to everyone here, I really should take some courses on writing and learn how to write again. What i meant to say was, I edited the original picture that read "Lcpl boudreaux killed my father and then he knocked up my sister" to read "Lcpl boudreaux saved my father and then he fixed up my sister"

Again apologies to everyone who misunderstood my badly wrote sentence. Feel free to flame me all you want, i probably deserve it.

Oh get over it for God's sake! The one thing that has kept the GI going since the Revolutionary War is his sense of humor.

This is my full quote, which you saw fit not to use in your comment:

"Anybody knows that writing on cardboard with a pencil, especially as dark as this printing appears, will cause the pencil point to puncture the cardboard at various points. There are no pressure points or puncture points shown on this piece of carboard, which leads me to believe that the original message was removed and a new one put in its place."

I said it led ME to believe. I didn't force you to believe or accept MY opinion now did I? Or are you one of those individuals who can't think for themselves?

Hmmmn.

The story doesn't say it's real, it says the Marines are only investigating.
