Body: 

"I got out of the Marine Corp 45 days early. I was in the honor guard section of the marine Corp. I was in the color guard section of the honor guard. I was a part of this group for the last 16 months I was in the service. I went to the D.C. police department from 1969 to 1972 when I got out of the Marine Corp. At that time, so many police officers who were Vietnam veterans like I was were committing suicide, so I decided to leave the police department. I went to the NIH, Red Cross and many other places, because it made me happier. I set up blood drives here at Georgetown through the Red Cross for 25 years and now I’m back at Georgetown. I am a person who believes in serving my fellow human beings no matter what sex, race or political affiliation. Our democracy in America now is what makes me so mad. We should stand for democracy and what is right. That’s it.”
