Giving up his student deferment, Jeremiah Wright joined the
Marines. Two years later, he re-enlisted in the Navy, where he
served four more years. In the Navy, he was trained as a
cardiopulmonary technician (seen here in 1966 as part of
the team attending to a post-op President Johnson). But
Jeremiah's patriotism never quite equalled Dick Cheney's,
who never gave up his student deferment, because, he said,
"I had other priorities in the '60s than military service."
