Local Marines attend Super Bowl
MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C.
(Feb. 8, 2005)
The Cleveland Browns didn't make it to Super Bowl XXXIX, but the spirit of the game rang true as their generosity sent approximately 30 II Marine Expeditionary Force Marines and sailors to Jacksonville, Fla., for the game.
The Cleveland Browns donated Super Bowl tickets to the Marines through their Hats Off to Our Heroes program - a program honoring members of the military for the protection of our country.
Among the Marines present for the game was one Bronze Star recipient and multiple Purple Heart recipients.
Please read the entire article here and see the pictures of some happy Marines.
From Jennifer Martinez, more news from Camp LeJeune. This about Lance Corporal James B. Miller. I've been wondering when he would surface again. Welcome home, local hero and celebrity!

A Hole in One
A rabbi loved to play golf, but he never seemed to have time. He couldn't play on Shabbat, there was religious school on Sundays, and on days off, something always comes up.
But, amidst all the activity of the High Holidays, he got a very early tee time before services on Yom Kippur.
A passing angel saw him and reported to the Lord. "I'll take care of him," was the casual response, and the angel hurried back to the golf course to watch.
On the next hole, the rabbi got a hole in one.
Baffled, the angel returned to question the Lord. "Weren't you going to punish him for playing golf on Yom Kippur, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar?" the angel asked. "He just got a hole in one!"
"I know," replied the Lord. "But who's he going to tell?"

Subject: BEWARE OF NEW SCAM
This new scam is being pulled mainly on us older men.
What happens is that when you stop for a red-light a young, nude woman comes up and pretends to be washing your windshield. While she is doing this, another person opens your back door and steals anything in the car. They are very good at this.
They got me 7 times Monday and 5 times Wednesday.
I wasn't able to find them today.
