    Ya just gotta love a story like this one. It just lifts everyone's spirits.

    I'm just glad he was there to take the crook down before the clerk got punched again.

    We could all learn a lesson from Sjostrom about helping each other out.

    How wonderful of the Marine! It shows that some people still know how to help someone in trouble.

    I loved what the marine did, I used to be a police officer, I am small but I was always able to take the bad guys down. It was not always easy and many times I could have used someone like Sjostrom to help me out. Good for him, great story.

    OORAH for the Marine. In my immediate family there are/were 4 marines. I am proud to say my son and my grandson are marines. Once a Marine always a Marine. SEMPER FI

    There is no such thing as a former Marine. Sjostrom just wasn't on active duty at the time.Once a Marine always a Marine.

    Hey, I got this in the mail today, as I usually do and usually I hust send it on to some of the families I know who have people in the armed forces, but today I read it. It is a great story and I think I will encourage others on my list of e-mails to tead it too. Thanks again for putting these stories out. Mary Lou

    Hooray for the Marine. Not many people will get involved in something like this. He should get a medal or an award from the store or at least the city.
