"Does nobody else see a problem with this story? Ok if it was true then what I dont get is he waits 8 years and the first people he wants to sit down
and tell is an internet conspiracy site. ok whatever. Also lets just say it is true, than I feel he's just as much to blame for not taking the
aprorpriate action and or going through the proper channels to do something about it. Its not like he was a rape victom, who I could understand why
they may hide there abuse. Instead you claim you where locked up, druged, held against your will and just was like hey no big deal ill sit on it for 8
years instead of maybe doing something about it before someone else could posiably be hurt or abused worse. Please dont take this the worng way but,
Im sorry but I just dont buy it."
I enlisted in the AirForce back in 2002. In the first 2 weeks of basic training in Lackland TX, I sustained a severe injury to my back, and ended up
in "medical hold" for lack of a better term. (I slept in a dorm with other injured trainees, and still had to follow the normal routine...up at 5 am
revelry, breakfast-lunch-dinner, classes, drills which I had to sit-out because I was injured, bedtime at 9 pm)
While I was there in basic, I witnessed several things many would not believe. One girl was partially paralyzed as a result of a botched shot--the
trainee who administered her shot apparently pierced her sciatic nerve. The powers that be at Lackland refused to accept responsibility for crippling
her...they denied her the right to speak to her parents or anyone off base, they attempted to label her as a "fraudulent enlistment", saying she had
a pre-existing condition (paralysis?!) which was AGGRAVATED by having her sciatic nerve pierced!
Another trainee was put in indefinite medical hold (had been there 11 months) because he had some sort of reactive Arthritis which prevented sustained
physical activity, and which the docs there could not figure out how to treat--he was not allowed to be discharged, nor was he allowed to finish
Basic...he just had to stay put indefinitely until his condition could "resolve itself naturally" which it apparently had not done in 11 months.
There are a few other aberrent cases of military weirdness, but my purpose in posting is not to slander the entire US military or those men and women
who put their lives on the line for us. I am posting to say that YES, weird doo-do does happen.
Is the OP a liar? I don't know. But I can tell you that there is injustice in the world, and sadly, there can be injustice in the Military as
To the OP, if your experience is true, you have my sympathy and I wish you the best in life with your family and faith.
