Marine Transporter Becomes Mayor
After you leave the service, you realize that the Marines taught you everything about how to put the uniform on. However, they forget to really teach you how to take it off. So what do you do when you leave the service? There's always that itch to continue serving, but nothing to scratch it with. Not in the case of Denis Shorter, BGen USMC (retired), a former KC-130 Pilot who served 32 years in our Corps and once served as the Commanding Officer of VMGR-234. If serving his country for 32 years wasn't already enough, he decided to continue his service and run for mayor of Dunwoody, GA, and won the election. Watch his acceptance speech below.
