Re: Graner’s Sentence

I’m getting e-mail from a lot of retired military folk who just want to be

heard; I’m also told that a lot of non-military people (e.g. contractors)

can send *.mil e-mail, a thing I didn’t know; so I’m throwing it open to

anyone with military credentials.

The 30-plus e-mails so far strongly favor the ten-year sentence. Feeling is

that Graner really dishonored his uniform. Another point made by several:

The military is a line of work in which, if you screw up, you get dead –

possibly taking buddies with you. This guy screwed up & only got ten years.

I have a few dissenters, with suggested sentences down to 2 yrs. Nobody

matching my 30 days yet.
