All help is good help. Can you post this info so that individuals can make small donations? Happy to open a dialogue with anyone who is interested, though I am leaving in the morning on my long journey to Iraq to represent LTC West in the Art 32 hearing. Don't have much time until I get back. Duty calls, my man.
New info: Please circulate for the benefit of the West family.

I have received the stories on your case. I have forwarded it to my Veterans List (MANY) and received the following from a friend who is a *** Information temporally omitted as requested *** and who I believe IIRC is also an attorney as well. He seeks contact.
If you wish, I will put you in contact if it forms no conflict for any involved.

Advise me on you wishes and I will do as you direct.

Lt Col West didn't do anything (ie: intimidation in order to gain information) that police officers in this country don't do every single day.
