Gunny Popaditch, retired, is famously remembered as the "Cigar Marine" filmed as the statue of Saddam was pulled down in Baghdad. I'm sure you have seen him on the National Geographic series on Iraq. In 2004, he was wounded a by an RPG that nicked his helmet during the battle of Fallujah. Popaditch now wants to represent California’s 51st Congressional District. He’s challenging Incumbent Democrat Bob Filner, to represent the California district that runs along the Mexico border. Filner has been in office since 2003.
