Hello, everyone at ATS, I just saw this "introduction post" thing, and figured I'd better do mine. I'm not a very eloquent writer, and I'm not
Einstein, so I'll try to make this as brief as possible.
I'm a U.S. Marine in the growing ranks in our military that are none too happy with the behavior of our government, its leadership, and its handling
of the war. I've been watching this site for a while, just didn't member up. My lieutenant mentioned it a while ago while we were *snip* about some
shady stuff we encountered our first time over, and I realized what a stark contrast there was between the official line on some things, and what was
really happening. So I gave it a look to see if anyone here was sane or if it was just another *snip* of nutjobs. To my surpise, I've seen that most
of the people here (in the places I've looked) do their research, raise legitimate concerns, and generally don't act like dumbasses. Pleasant
I understand how a lot of people here feel. It gets pretty damn aggravating being told "don't worry about it," "it's being looked into,"
"that's above your pay grade," "you're not the Provost Marshal, stop asking questions." So I'm here to hopefully contribute relevant material
if I see a post that needs it, and maybe to see if anyone's keeping an eye on the same things I am. Semper Fidelis.
