I heard somewhere he wet the bed to get out of boot camp.

I did the same thing during BCT but they refused to discharge me.I guess back then the Army was more "hard core" than the Marines! ;-)

Dano had to wear the trench coat and multi-pocket vest while clinging to the Palm Tree in heavy winds.

Dan still puts on his Marine uniform late at night.

Funny stuff. Rather made up false reports to disparage Bush¨s
service but never served himself. Probably got a dew Purple Hearts from John Kerry.

This whole thing's as strange a low flying ice cloud hanging over a west Texas prairie dog village on Easter morning.

Oh yeah, and what's the frequency Kenneth?

I hope this story turns out to be TRUE, as it’s long past time to finally put lying Dan Rather out to pasture.

My son barely made it through boot camp at Parris Island. He was actually in the running for “Honor Graduate” of his platoon, but fell out during the final test - The Crucible. Extremely hot weather and low blood sodium landed him in the hospital. He wrote home saying he might not make it, but it didn’t matter. He could find other ways to serve. Said he didn’t need a badge on his shoulder to have honor, he had that before he went.

He fell back into a later class and repeated the exercise a week or two later. Success. Not bad for a 125 pound kid humping a load far too heavy for his frame. He then became a Marine because he earned it.

He always seemed to be a cut above some of the other Marines I’ve encountered. It wasn’t just a job for him. Sadly, he didn’t make it more than a few months in Iraq. He was, is, and will always be a real Marine. Not like these fakers.

I almost lost my son in Iraq during the first few days of the 2003 invasion. Other episodes were less threatening to some degree but it was still a nightmare here. Sometimes I have felt as if I almost know what it is like to lose a son but of course I cannot really know.

I am so sorry for your loss.

Thank You for sharing and God bless You.
