O'Keefe Award

As proof that not everyone is cut out to be a Marine, this guy apparently came a bit unhinged upon returning from Iraq. Also, here's a write-up about him that appeared in the same paper on March 26, 2003:

He's so strong and hardy she doesn't worry about him surviving the physical ordeal of being in the desert. She is also confident that her son and his fellow Marines are very well-trained.

"They're tough," she says. "They're young and they're fighters and they're survivors."

She asked her son if he believed in what he was fighting for, and the reason he was fighting.

"He said he did, so that's good."

To the uninitiated, Ken Nichols O'Keefe is a crackpot ex-Marine who was dishonorably discharged and decided to make Hawaiian secession and anti-war protesting his personal crusade. You might remember seeing him on television a few times in the days leading up to the invasion of Iraq.

Hat tip to blondie for the heads up on this story!
