Who says that military recruiters mislead the young men they seek to recruit? I asked the recruiter, “What can the Marine Corps do for me?” “Give you a rifle and a hard time,” he said. I asked the recruiter, “What are the chances of going overseas?” “There are just two kinds of Marines,” he said, “Those that are going and those that are coming back.” And so it was from San Diego to Quantico; to Swamp LeJeune; to Camp Pendleton; to Camp Smith; to Okinawa; to the Westchester County; to Chu Lai; to Da Nang; to Camp Pendleton; and some exotice climes and places on the way.
