George Pataki said Thursday his eldest son, Teddy, is about to be commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Marine Corps, but hopes to get a deferment to attend law school. "But once you take the oath and swear the oath, it's up to the Marines at that point," the Republican governor said, adding that his son would be sworn in on Saturday, the day after his father turns 60. Pataki said that if his son was not granted a deferment and is sent to Iraq, "I think I would feel the way every parent feels, which is tremendous pride in the courage and the patriotism of your child, along with the appropriate concern whenever any of our loved ones are placed in harm's way." The governor said he hopes his son gets a deferment, which would allow him to spend three years in law school and then four years on active duty with the Marines. Teddy Pataki just graduated from Yale University, his father's alma mater. The governor, who went on to Columbia Law School, did not serve in the military. He said he had a medical deferment during the Vietnam War because of poor eyesight.
