In March of last year a 20 year old Marine Corps recruit from a Detroit suburb died at Paris Island South Carolina shortly after he arrived for boot camp training. He was a Muslim. In a front page article in the New York Times Sunday Magazine, the author Janet Reitman looks at how the young man died and reveals a lot about the culture of the Marine Boot Camp at Paris Island. Radioactivity host Rob Lorei interviewed Reitman about the circumstances of the recruit’s death.
