During the Vietnam war, my boyfriend, now myhusband, had a picture of me taped on the inside of his locker. My husband was asked where i was from (obviously not American) and he told them i was from Cuba. The sargeant heard and pried his locker open and tore down my picture and cut it up into little pieces. If you have the time, can you explain this action to me? My husband wont elaborate on this story, but he did say they all were offended that "he", a Marine, would have a picture of a "Cuban" inside his locker.
I will not comment on the McBeth issue- other than to say it does not sound "impossible" to me, given what was done to my picture. I was 16 years old.
NOTE: This is a question for WhiteOneActual only.

The reason for the war is supposedly to protect our country from some enemy, but I see the greatest damage being done internally. The terrorist don't have to do anything anymore, we will implode if we keep going the way we are going.

For the apologists and huggy buggys: I'm no supporter of the military in its general role as current, but I do support those that have and do still serve.

We are not all members of the military nor do we hate you or even think you deserved to go to Prison.
Oh i dunno about that. Some members of the miiltary would still feel the guy deserved a second chance.

So instead of coming out with made-up stories about war crimes... why didn't you just come out to the media about the atrocities you claim to have suffered in boot camp?
Out of your whole platoon, I would bet that at least one person would have come forward to support your allegations.
