Corddy definitely broke his arm at either, Camp Child or Camp Squanto.... most likely attempting physical comedy to make Smitty, Rudy, Haas Preskins laugh or any of the many friends Rob had in Troop 19 laugh. His family (super nice people) most likely don't remember because they weren't there. P.S. Corddy was a good man back then, just like it was represented in the hospital records.

Wow--thank you for that! The "Rob" episode had me laughing so hard I might have even hooted amidst some snorts and actual guffaws. (Well, what ever sounds I was making--they garnered the stares, surprised glares, and comments/inquiries that one just doesn't get from San Francisco's eternally unperturbable citizens.) Of course, had anyone actually spied on me throughout the duration of my walk, they might have been further distressed to see me crying at the end of it, as once again, Heavyweight hit me with some MAJOR feels as Johnathan wrapped the episode up into a tidy, little ouroboros of a story. *Sidenote* I was actually pleasantly surprised this DIDN'T turn into a Brian Williams / HRC /etc. persistence of (false) memories issue. (Though I probably would've insisted on bombarding Johnathan with pop-push explanations of why false memories aren't lies or crazy-people-shit if Rob HADN'T been vindicated lol.)
