For your morning (afternoon) read:
- Mildly interesting piece in MarCorps Times, here, about marijuana use by SoCal troops and PTSD.
- For those with an insatiable appetite for all things related to SEAL cases, you’ll appreciate this UK SOF operator’s thoughts on fighting insurgents and mistreatment of captured insurgents, here. This is the accused in the Welllie boot detainee assault I mentioned last month, here.
- From Canada, worries about panel composition in the detainee killing case, see Toronto Star here,
Semrau’s panel consists of a commodore, a lieutenant-colonel, two majors and a captain — one navy, two air force, two army — all from logistic or administrative services. From their individual and service backgrounds, none has understanding or experience with what a patrol or platoon commander requires outside the wire.
- Today is LTC Lakin’s (Army flight surgeon and birther du jour) day of reckoning. Does he report to Ft. Campbell for deployment processing?
