Marine Hopes To Spend Second Tour Of Duty On Different Baghdad City Block

BAGHDAD—Lance Cpl. Rudy Coletto, a Marine on his first tour of duty in Baghdad's violence-wracked Tissa Nissan district, said he hopes to be reassigned to a different area of the city once his request for discharge is refused.
