No-fly list keeps Marine off plane


UPI News Service, 04/13/2006 

A Minnesota Marine's return home from Iraq was delayed for a couple of hours because his name appeared on a "no-fly" list.

Sgt. Dan Brown apparently made the list because, when he left for Iraq last June, an airport security check found traces of gunpowder on his boots, television station KARE-11 reported. The traces were probably a souvenir of his previous tour in Iraq.

While the rest of Brown's unit had to board a flight from Los Angeles to Minneapolis-St. Paul, the Marines decided to wait for him at the airport before heading to Fort Snelling, Minn., deciding that they wanted to return as they had left -- as one unit.

Brown was allowed to board a plane after a couple of hours at the Los Angeles airport.

"You're in uniform, you're carrying orders, you're carrying an ID card," Brown said. "Let's use a little common sense here."

Now he hopes to get his name off the list.
