Open Letter on Iraq

Marine Vet For Freedom

526851_10153202915035381_861229594_nTo Members of Congress, political pundits, and all those who comment on the situation in Iraq:

I am a United States Marine. I served with 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines from 2003-2007, deploying twice in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. I fought in Hit, Fallujah, Haditha, and many other places in that country.

I have been plagued with doubt, wondering what I did there, and found myself asking frequently as to why we were sent to war.

I lost 23 friends in the deserts, towns, and cities of Iraq. We were told it was to stabilize the region (mind you after we didn’t turn up any chemical or bio weapons manufactured after 1996). What was the point in them losing their lives, among 4700+ other soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines?

You pundits and politicians asking us to go back….for what? There was no mission at that time as you all enjoyed…
