Listen To The Story

Tess Vigeland: Our little blue plastic friend is heading to Hawaii! That's the new home of the Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 367. Yes -- the entire unit is off to the islands. The Marines ship out from Camp Pendleton in just a few weeks. They'll be bringing the stall wall with them, of course. That great financial literacy idea wins them a piggy this week.

So, Scarface, look after your pig, keep him off the roasting spit, feed him well and he'll be semper fidelis.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
