136. According to his USMC service record, Oswald qualified as a SHARPSHOOTER in 1956.
I'm sure that every other service man who attained that rank is pleased to hear you smear them by averring that sharpshooters can't shoot straight.

BTW - had you actually looked at the evidence (as you say you have), you would be well aware of Oswald's attaining the rank of sharpshooter in the USMC. You would also be aware that representatives of the USMC testified to the WC that compared to the typical Marine, Oswald was a "better than average shot," and when compared to the average civilian, Oswald was "an excellent shot." Funny choice of words by the USMC reps to describe a guy who (in your words) "couldn't shoot straight," wouldn't you say?

BTW - who is offering the revisionist history when it comes to Oswald's shooting abilities? You, or the Marine Corps that trained him, tested him and rated him?
