Courtesy OpinionJournal.com, here's a story about the anti-Sheehan. Bill Krissoff is an orthopedic surgeon. He's 61. His older son, Marine Corps 1st Lt. Nathan Krissoff, died in Anbar Province in December 2006 at age 25. His younger son is a Marine.
Krissoff closed his practice and enlisted in the Navy. But he needed a waiver because the oldest age for medical officer enlistees in the Navy is 42. So he obtained one from President Bush after discussing the matter with the President at an American Legion convention in Reno, Nev.
Why the Navy? Because Naval medical staff ministers to Marines.
