The Walker Brigade

Woman, 78, gets recruitment letter from Marine Corps

SAUGUS - Sonia Goldstein was flattered by the nice recruiting letter asking her to consider becoming one of "the few, the proud."


The letter told her the corps could use her unique language skills, but also warned that life as a Marine would test her physical and mental abilities "beyond anything you've ever known."

"There I am with my walker. I can't maneuver from here to there without it," said Goldstein, who added that her only language is English.

She's gonna have a hard time with the obstacle course...
