In the fall of 1982, Richard Paul Boucher was near the beginning of a 10-year sentence for beating and robbing [five people]. Then Boucher and another inmate struck a prison guard in the head with a clothes iron and disappeared from Tidewater Correctional Unit No. 22 - a prison on Greenbrier Parkway that closed years ago.I know; you're wondering what this story has to do with America's smallest military service.
Just kidding. Actually the link is slight, but present nonetheless. One of the people he beat and robbed was a member of the fifth military branch; the other four were Navy sailors.
Here's my question: what were four sailors and a Guardian doing hanging out together? ;-)
