I'm glad he's not getting court martialed. Too bad I'm not President. He'd get a medal and a promotion.

That is great. Somebody has some sense.

Well it's good and bad. I don't think they should do shit to the man. He did what needed to be done to save lives. And he did it without killing or otherwise causing massive bodily harm to the guy.

JAG probably realized that he would have been aquitted in a Courts-Martial!!! Still could go to Courts-Martial if the LTC turns down the Article 15!!!

What I heard is the most he will get is 2 months of reduced pay. I propose we take a collection to offset the penalty and give it to him when he returns stateside. And a big party too. I'm sure his troops would pitch in too. Let me see if I can get some other supporters in on this. If DA won't give him a medal, we will honor our war hero.

Please pass on my [b]HUGE THANKS for his service[/b] ! Is he in need of lawyer money ? I see someone posted a address for such ?

I think he should refuse the Article 15 and force a CM. It's about Honor. LTC West is an Honorable Soldier.

that makes my day, no cm, he needs a medal
Link Posted: 12/10/2003 11:03:03 AM EDT
Please thank him for me too.

Roger that. However, were it me, rest assured, someone WOULD be facing a court martial. Just not him.
