UPDATE: A couple
of years ago, I was the Operations Officer for the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, on the waterfront between the USS ARIZONA
and the USS BOWFIN. The Commandant of the Marine Corps was the featured speaker at the dedication of the USS ARIZONA Marine
Remembrance, 10 November 2006. The National Park Service, which administers the USS ARIZONA Memorial is renovating all of
Halawa Landing, the site of the Marine Remembrance. The Regional Director of the Natl Park Service Western Region, Jon Jarvis,
stated on the local TV news that the Marine Remembrance would be removed. I challenged him on that statement and convinced
him that would not happen without a fight. I passed the word to (disabled vet and webmaster) Jack Cunningham (Americans
Working Together), who in turn asked his readership to email Jarvis that the entire USMC would make every effort to have him
relieved of his duties if he moved that monument. I was copied on many of the emails to him from Marines, their friends and
their families that it nearly fried my computer. And...it worked. In order to save his job, Jarvis backed down. The
Remembrance now belongs to the USMC and has its' rightful place in direct view of the USS ARIZONA.
I'm writing this request (again) on behalf of Jack Cunningham, a former
active duty Marine and Vietnam veteran. Although I've never actually met him in person, simply the fact that he is a
fellow Marine in need of justice, I offer to help him in any way I can. As you may know, Marines are like that.
Marines take care of Marines.
Although I probably don't know all of the facts pertaining to his case against the State
of New Jersey, I know enough to firmly believe that he should be heard in a public forum. His charges are serious.
There are claims of abuse of power and cover-up at the highest level of the State government. When such accusations
are made, I believe the leadership has no other option than to investigate. Until that is done, all that know of him
and his charges will assume that there is indeed a cover-up. Perception is a powerful thing. Hopefully it won't
be counter to the truth, whatever that may be.
If this is allowed to continue to fester, the results will be devastating
on all involved.
If this issue is not addressed soon, my only other option is to forward this to every Marine
website and public forum I can find. That option is not a good one for any of us.
Please do the right thing and
give Jack his "day in court."

DURING THE VIETNAM WAR, AMERICANS
LIVED AND SERVED (24/7) WITHIN VIETNAMESE VILLAGES. FEW AMERICANS
BACK HOME EVER HEARD OF THESE MILITARY TEAMS, BECAUSE THE AMERICAN
NEWS MEDIA WAS NOT INTO TELLING POSITIVE, TRUTHFUL STORIES OF
THOSE SERVING HONORABLY FOR AMERICA. IT'S PRETTY MUCH THE
SAME TODAY WITH THE AMERICAN NEWS MEDIA.
BELOW IS AN ARTICLE
ABOUT ONE OF THESE MILITARY TEAMS IN VIETNAM. THE COMBINED
ACTION PROGRAM (CAP) WAS SUCH A SUCCESS DURING THE VIETNAM WAR,
THIS UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS' UNIT WAS REACTIVATED FOR OUR
CURRENT WAR ON TERRORISM.

In Vietnam, It Was Nicknamed "The Peace Corps
Volunteers With Rifles."
Anyone familiar with the Combined Action Platoons of the Vietnam War will understand what's going on here (In Iraq today).
These Marines live, work, sleep, eat and bathe in the same neighborhoods they are helping to stabilize. In doing so, they're
no longer driving in from a forward operating base, or FOB, outside the city and conducting patrols. Instead, they wake up
in the morning, plan a patrol, then walk out into the neighborhood and greet the men and women sweeping their sidewalks or
tending their shops. They're literally swarmed with children wanting a high five or a piece of chocolate. They visit schools,
markets and local infrastructure projects to see how things are going. There are no interrogations or mean faces, just a neighborly
walk through their district to check on the locals who sometimes know them by name.
Below are two links to some articles about the Marine Corps' Civil Action Programs
I served on a CAP Team in the Duc Duc Refugee Village. Sometimes, we only had four (4)
Americans in a village of 2,000 homes.
We got pulled out from our village in August 1970, because of President Nixon's troop pullout.
In March 1971, the village was burned to the ground by communist terrorists and hundreds and hundreds of innocent men, women
and children were killed, wounded and reported missing. http://www.americans-working-together.com/id222.html
traumatic events~such as natural disasters, abuse, crime, accident, rape,
war etc.~ millions of people develop PTSD with symptoms raging from nightmares to headaches, flashbacks,
withdrawing from people, profound sadness, anxiety, anger, guilt, fatigue, pessimism, sexual problems and emotional numbing.
Instead of the State of New Jersey giving me "reasonable disability
accommodations" for my war-service-related PTSD, the State allowed Maynard & Truland's arrogant lawyers to mock my disability
in New Jersey Supreme Court documents.
The corrupt law firm Maynard & Truland was the defendant in the
case, and I was the Plaintiff in the ethics complaint.
