THE YOUNG MARINE: I'll Just Stay A While

The nurse finally returned and started to offer her sympathy, but the Marine interrupted her. He asked, “ Who was that man?” The nurse was startled and said, “ He is your father”. The Marine replied, “ No he is not, I never saw him before in my life”. The nurse said to the Marine, “ Then why did you not say anything when I took you to him”? T he Marine replied by saying , “ I knew right away there was a mistake, but I knew that he needed his son, and his son was just not there. When I realized that he was too sick to tell whether I was his son or not his son and saw how sick that he was, and how much he needed me, I stayed. I came here tonight to find a Mr. William Gray to inform him that his son was killed in Iraq today. What was this gentleman's name” The nurse, with tears in her eyes, answered, “ Mr William Gray ”.
