Obama's minister was supposedly a Marine in 2ND MARDIV '61-63 as a PFC then in the navy as a cardio tech at Bethesda hospital. Is there any way to confirm he was in the Corps and find out about his service? And is it unusual to transfer from the Marines to the Navy? I know Marine corpsmen are usually Navy personell, never understood that either! I just find it difficult to believe anyone that had been a Marine could preach as he has. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
