The Fabulous Baker Boy

When my pal Marc sent me a link to this story about Cameron Baker, an Iraq war veteran who was using the new, more generous GI bill to attend Columbia, I was pretty sure it wasn't because he thought I'd find it educational. (Yes, Baker does have a license for those guns.) As it would happen, though, I did find the story of the 26-year-old Airman -- who nearly flunked out of high school twice, then served back-to-back deployments to Iraq and three more years there with a private contractor -- as interesting as I found him handsome. Listen to him talk about his Ivy League college experience -- replete with classroom post-traumatic-stress-disorder freakouts -- HERE.
