Those Marines deserve support

Knowing no more than I have read in our local paper, I would like to know the origin of the (U.S. Marines urinating on Taliban corpses) video (Journal, Jan. 15). Who recorded it, why and who released it? Nobody I know likes a snitch. These boys are never fully trained to deal with what they see going on in their immediate theater of operations. The rage they must feel at times and then have no outlet to vent it but to just suck it up is going to come out sooner or later in some manner or form. Let’s discipline if required by the Marine Corps standards of moral conduct but with the compassion and understanding of being a parent whose child committed an act that he/she wouldn’t ordinarily do under normal circumstances. These Marines deserve our full understanding and support. James McKesson, Auburn
