    Personally, I wonder what I'm fighting for if this stuff is happening. [​IMG] Really this is scary to read this stuff, now I know why the hospital questions each patient the suicide/depression questions.

    If he really did aim high to miss then he is innocent and did the best he could in a terrible situation. He and his father need to be protected and not persecuted. He had the balls to do what no one else would do and that is to call this scumbag sgt. out and report him.

    I'm glad he's safe for the time being. The fact that my own countrymen are behind over-ups and these kinds of threats make me sick to my stomach. All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. Thank you Christopher Winfield for your honorable service and for standing alone against your own "allies".

    Oh he isn't safe. He is still out there in the thick of it with theses scumbags, and he'll still fear for his life. I do appreciate his honor and courage to try and trap them. This is a very small cult of people in the military, and a very poor representative of the miltary as a whole.
