Something to ponder

I certainly don't want to speak ill of someone who gave his life in the service of his nation, but the article linked above gives rise to some questions. It states the captain joined the Corps at the age of 17 and was killed in Iraq at the age of 33, this year. I'm wondering how this man managed to serve 16 years and attained a rank no higher than captain, which would amount to two promotions over all those years.

Certainly, Newsweek and MSNBC fell in love with the story because of the obvious anti-Bush administration slant. I suppose it's reasonable they would use anything with that slant irrespective of any other questions that might arise--much like the media have milked the Michael J. Fox thing, even though now Fox has admitted he hadn't read the Missouri law and, consequently, didn't know what the hell he was talking about.
