CHICAGO - Toys fill the gymnasium - boxes of teddy bears press against a weapons cabinet, bags of dolls and games are stacked high - but it isn't Christmas as usual at the Marine Corps Reserves training center. This year, Toys for Tots - the program that has put toys into the hands of millions of kids and let the nation see the softer side of Marines for close to 60 years - is missing many of the men and women who are its driving force. "We had 270 reservists helping us with Toys for Tots last year," said Maj. Rick Coates of the 2nd Battalion, 24th Marines.
