Ex-Marine, 78, fights off boy, 14
The way I see it, the kid’s mistake (besides the obvious crime) was in not realizing there really isn’t such a thing as an “EX” Marine. Today is the thirteenth anniversary of my father’s death. So no one has to tell me that Marines are fighters. Be it hoodlums or cancer... Marines don’t go without a fight. Rest in peace, Dad.
