    Hello, I have been working on a fund-raiser for one of the Marines listed below. We feel that they need help such as letters of encouragement and or donations for off-setting the legal cost for the trials they all face. The media and a certain politician from PA. has pretty much voiced that these guys are all guilty...never the less I felt compelled to post this in hopes some of you wish to send letters to them or if you would like to contribute. I know first hand that some of the letters they have been getting have raiser the spirits of these young brave men!

    Thank you,
    Semper Fi,
    Cpl.James

    From the Marines and Sailor:
    On Monday, July 3, the father of one of these Marines was interviewed on a National radio program. He had just visited his son and the others in the brig at Pendleton, and they asked him to pass the following message on to the American people:

    "We appreciate the support and prayers of so many Americans. We would like to ask that you please direct your prayers to our fellow Marine brothers and Sailors who remain in Iraq. They really need your support."
    — 7 Marines and a Sailor
    Camp Pendleton, CA

    Seven Marines and one Navy Corpsman are being held in the Camp Pendleton Brig charged with premeditated murder, conspiracy, assault and other very serious charges. The incident in question took place while assigned to combat in Iraq with the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division (REIN), “Darkhorse 3/5”, one of the most storied infantry battalions in the history of the US Marine Corps.
    We've received many phone calls and inquiries on how to support these young men. The links below to individual defense funds have been verified as established defense funds. We will add more addresses and information as verification is made.

    NOTE: Any donations you may make to a defense fund should be viewed as a bonafied gift regardless of the outcome of the trial(s). Providing links to the funds does not indicate endorsement by MarineParents.com, Inc.

    I agree one hundred & one percent. They can behead and hang our people from a bridge, bomb our Twin Towers but let us slip up once and we are scrood...and what this does to moral is not good either. And special thanks to Rep. :mad: John Murtha of (PA.) saying they are already guilty. What a Marine he is, eh? It steams me he sells his Semper Fi out for politics. Cheap shot artist I think....
