    They were not Marines, period.

    Nor do Navy Seals call themselves Marines, no more than Marines label themselves Seals.

    And the twisting and turning of facts to support a bogus letter does no one any credit.

      I hear a voice in this though.  The words are just too clear and I'm a very strong woman.  This woman is supposedly an ex-Marine.  I hear a voice in this and I won't be surprised at all to discover one day that it was a real voice.  I wish that Orange would question some other diaries lately on the rec list this vigorously, like that fanatical Bush and his Evangelicals are going to blow up the world diary that hung on here all day yesterday.

        And it's that of a wish-fulfillment fraud.

        As I said in a comment below, I post the stories of each of the fallen, and diary the same once a month.

        I could, except for time constraints, give you two dozen authentic anti-war quotes by grieving parents, wives and loved ones. None of them sound remotely like the letter posted above.
