God Bless Staff Sgt. Raymond Plouhar

Michael Moore <>
making a point , but at the expense of others as usual !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God Bless Staff Sgt. Raymond Plouhar Plouhar was killed on June 26 by a roadside bomb in Anbar province in his second tour of duty in Iraq, weeks before he was to return home. He was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force in Camp Pendleton, Calif.
He was featured in Michael Moore "Fahrenheit 9/11," portrayed as an overzealous Marine recruiter who targeted poor kids. It was as a recruiter that Plouhar was seen in Moore's award-winning "Fahrenheit 9/11." The segment shows Plouhar and another Marine in a mall
parking lot in a depressed suburb of Flint; it suggests the two men were cynically hunting for poor teens to sign up, rather than go to a wealthy suburb where they'd likely be rejected. Plouhar's father says his son told him he had been misled and believed he was being filmed for a documentary that would appear on the Discovery Channel. (Moore's office didn't return calls or e-mail messages seeking comment.) "He cried when he found out what it really was," his father says. "He never dreamed that it was going to be something to slam the country, which he
dearly loved." The message is ready to be sent with the following file or link attachments:
