A U.S. Marine recruiter who was "featured" in Michael Moore's "documentary" was killed in Iraq. The headline:
'Fahrenheit 9/11' Marine killed in Iraq
Not included in this short wire story (a longer version is here) was an anecdote about Staff Sgt. Raymond J. Plouhar that brought a smile to my face.
Raymond Plouhar said that all his 30-year-old son ever wanted to do was serve his country.
"I remember when he fell in the bathtub and cut his chin when he was 6 years old, and the only way I could get him to go to the hospital was to tell it was a MASH unit," Raymond Plouhar said. "I'm proud that my son wanted to protect the freedom of this country whether we all agree with the war or not."
Pray for the Plouhar family.
