the marines are looking for recruits to join the few and the proud.
this explains the one-page letter that arrived last month in barbara mercer's seattle mailbox.
"now is the time to put your unique language skills to the test as a member of the united states marine corps," wrote brig. gen. w.e. gaskin.................
mercer is certainly not game for physical duress to forge what the letter refers to as "a bond that cannot be broken."
she might end up breaking a bone or two. "i'm 85 years old," mercer explains.......................
perhaps it is equal opportunity loving, military style.

Heck, if they'd take me when I am 90.... I'd go.
Blink of an eye
A 75-year-old Texas man was so excited to get a letter that he rushed out to get marching orders.
THAT's what I'm talkin' 'bout
