Staff Sgt. Raymond J. Plouhar, the Marine recruiter that appeared in Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11” was killed in Iraq by a roadside bomb.
A Marine and one-time recruiter who appeared in Michael Moore’s documentary film “Fahrenheit 9/11” has died in a roadside bombing in Iraq.
Staff Sgt. Raymond J. Plouhar, 30, died Monday of wounds suffered while conducting combat operations in Iraq’s volatile Anbar province, the Defense Department said Tuesday.
For those that don’t know, Plouhar is the Marine recruiter that said “It’s better to get them when they’re in ones and twos and work on them that way,” as he and a fellow recruiter cruised the parking lot of a mall for potential recruits.
Plouhar grew up in Lake Orion, about 30 miles north of Detroit.
He is survived by a wife and two children, ages 5 and 9. They live in Arizona.
