RIP to the deceased.

Preemptive strike:
This is not going to go towards a discussion of the controversial incident. It's over and done.

That's not him in the picture, it's another Marine from the same platoon. I almost fell off my chair when I saw that, firing off an email to the WP now WTF.

Great guy

I knew him and his wife well. He was in my squad as a boot. I'll miss that cat.

Interesting read. Lots of psychobabble, but seems to be a pretty good breakdown of the event.

Damn shame it turned out like it did. Sounds like they had a very successful deployment. It only takes one lapse of SA to fuck everything up.
