She's Baaaack: Hanoi Jane Has A Blog. (Update, Who Is This US Marine Capt. Marlissa Grogan?)

Update, added a picture of the military anti-war propagandist US Marine Capt. Marlissa Grogan
Big Hollywood reports Hanoi Jane aka Jane Fonda started a blog with the prompting of Rosie Odonnell. Hanoi is opening in a play on Broadway and gives readers an insight into this - plus - a sprinkling of anti-war propaganda.

She has a photo of Marlissa Grogan (Photo added below R), Captain in the US Marine Corp. Marlissa appears to think deployed soldiers are more anti-war than those stateside:

I left rehearsal tonight in a temp wig and costume to go downtown to the screenings of The FTA Show. David Zeiger and I came in after the first showing was over and answered questions.marlissa grogan.jpg

Joining us was Marlisa Grogan, Captain in the US Marine Corp (29 UES). I had never met her before and was very impressed. She has such a deep understanding of why it is important for us to support active duty members of the military who are anti war or, at least, anti a war they feel is wrong and ill-conceived.[note - not support the soldiers, support those who are anti-war]

She herself has been involved in an anti war show that has performed for active duty personnel. She said that it is the soldiers who have seen active duty who tend to be anti war more than the ones who have stayed stateside. “They just don’t know,” she said.

She talked about the similarities that exist between today’s military and those of the Vietnam era but also pointed out the profound differences, citing in particular, the fact that so many recruits are confronted with the choice between jail or military. For many it’s a much needed job.

Jail or military? How nice a member of our military is going around spreading this type of propaganda. Bitch!

Update: What does the Marine Corp think about a Capt. saying the above? Is Hanoi Jane using her or is this Capt. another John Kerry in female clothing?
