A story that the media might ignore

A Marine in Iraq has been given leave to come home and donate one of his kidneys to a friend. Excerpt:

Two San Antonians are shining examples of what it means to be friends for life.

A Marine has come home to give his best buddy one of his kidneys.

Jason Tully has had to battle a rare disease that's taken away his kidneys and finding a match for a donor was nearly impossible, until his friend Jeremy Duncan found out he needed his help.

Friends since the sixth grade Tully and Duncan never knew their true test of friendship would come to this.

"He's kind of the closest friend I've ever had. We grew up together, we've been through a lot," said Duncan.

Duncan is a 1st Lt. in the marines and was fighting the war in Iraq, but is on leave to help his friend. Family and fellow marines show their support in his fight for Tully's life.
