Marine calls himself to duty as guard of California elementary school

Former Marine Craig Pusley, who served only nine months before being discharged as a private first class in April 2008, greets children and parents at Hughson Elementary School before the start of classes on Thursday morning, December 20, 2012, in Hughson, California. The veteran who achieved national fame this week for guarding the elementary school had a far less distinguished service career than he has claimed in public, records obtained today show.
