When Marine recruiters go way beyond the call

You ain't gonna believe this one! Oh, sure you will. From the Seattle Post-Intelligencer:
For mom Marcia Cobb and her teenage son Axel, the white letters USMC on their caller ID soon spelled, "Don't answer the phone!"

But warnings and liquid crystal lettering can fade. So, two weeks ago when Marcia was cooking dinner Axel goofed and answered the call. And, faster than you can say "semper fi," an odyssey kicked into action that illustrates just how desperate some of the recruiters we've read about really are to fill severely sagging quotas.
Go read about the "odyssey". And if you see some guys in Undress Blues hanging around your kid with a big sack, grab him and run for his life!
