US Marine's Are the New Nigerian Prince?

I received this email today and found it rather amusing. I guess the Nigerian Prince story has worn out although it still seems to bring in $700,000 a year...

I guess the cheating scandal at her alma mater so embarrassed MG Diana M. Holland, she decided to take a reduction in rank and change Services.

I thought it was rather amusing as from what I understand there is no 42nd US Marine Battalion and did not even consider that Diana M Holland was a real person. Kinda adds to it given she is army and attended West Point too...
