here it is

Neatest parts to me are he started out in the marines and moved to the navy (shows intelligence) ;P

and the actions of the recruiter. He went beyond the call to get this man in service.

/salute to both of em

Not to diminish these fine actions in any way, but isn't the military kind of famous for taking in young men like this?

Just seems like I've heard stories that some of our finest leaders joined under similar circumstances.

They take in a lot of young men like this, but normally those young men are that way by choice. This kid didn't have a choice. For the recruiter to let the kid stay with him, and give him a car is a little more than trying to fill a quotta. It's a good storry because the people involved, other than mom and step-dad, seem to be good, caring people.

God Bless him. Someone should kick that step-father sqaure in the nuts! What the hell is wrong with people in society today ? I have a step-father and he has always treated me as one of his own. I just don't get people today!

I was homeless when I joined up. Luckily I had all my papers with me when I walked into the recruiter office.

10 years later, here I am, posting at work.

Many career military men came from very humble beginnings. I remember guys in bootcamp who were thrilled with the amount of food.


For the Marine Recruiter to allow the kid to live in his house, that's going above & beyond.
