A 2 and a 7 are easy to confuse, especially if smudged. TrishyPA, if you head west on 1-80, and then on, um, I think I-71 to I-74, you drive right through that dude's home town. So Special Forces dude comes home from long tour of duty, finds his wife immensely pregnant by some other dude, butchers her, and dumps her? Hm. Seems fairly likely, actually. I wonder if there's any way to find out who all was discharged in December 1976? A quick Google search turns up the information that Major WSR was active in the Swift Boat Veterans movement against John Kerry. Somebody by that name lives in Oregon, but he's 72, which makes him too old to be the same man.
