Anti-military teacher should 'go to hell'

 

 John Kelly says anti-military teacher should 'go to hell'

kelly.jpg
White House chief of staff John Kelly, in a wide-ranging interview with Fox News Radio, said the California teacher who has made headlines for bashing the military in a profane classroom rant should “go to hell” – while also vowing that the classified memo that Republicans say reveals shocking government surveillance abuses will soon be made public.

“Well, I think the guy ought to go to hell,” Kelly, a retired Marine general, told host Brian Kilmeade on Wednesday in a post-State of the Union interview. “I just hope he enjoys the liberties and the lifestyle that we have fought for.”

Gregory Salcido, the El Rancho High School teacher, was recorded asking students in his government class why they would want to serve in the military overseas, calling them "the lowest of our low.” He has since been put on administrative leave.

                                WHAT MAKES AVERAGE AMERICANS GREAT

With everyone in America being, so different, it is the 'Unity of Opposites' that pulls us together. 

 

WHEN THE ODDS ARE COMPLETELY STACKED AGAINST US, WE TAKE ACTION AND FIGHT FOR WHAT IS RIGHT ANYWAY.

 

Evil can never compete against truth, as long as there are good people willing to stand up against it....

John ‘Jack’ Cunningham is the youngest of seven children born from a middle class family from Queens, New York City. His family was a family of public service. With three generations of NYC police officers, Jack dreamed of the day that he would enter the police force like his father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He also dreamed of the day he would serve in the American military like his two older brothers, an uncle and two brother-in-laws. With most of them enlisting in the Army, one brother in the Navy, Jack wanted to volunteer in the Marine Corps’ like his sister’ husband who served in the Marines during the Korea War at the Chosin Reservoir. Jack mother’s oldest brother served in combat in France during World War I. Jack Cunningham's family were all proud of their service and jobs for America. Jack wanted no less for himself. And he got what he wanted... plus some. 

He was going to learn first hand, what terrorism was really about.  There the teenager from Rosedale, Queens, NYC learned never to give up, especially, if you have great buddies supporting you and you can trust...  And learn that "Honesty Defeats Duplicity."

In Vietnam, John "Jack" Cunningham was a rifleman living and serving (24/7) in a Vietnamese peasant-farming village with about 8 other U.S. Marines and about 1,500 families. Combat was heavy, and threats of combat were constant. Even to this day, few Americans heard of the Marine Corps' Combined Action Program (CAP).  It was known as 'The Other War' and also the 'Unknown War'.  The CAP program was awarded by the Vietnamese government their two highest unit awards for Gallantry and Civil Actions.

The unscrupulous, evil communists always knew the small team of mostly-teenage Americans were in the village somewhere. The Americans were not hiding. During the day light hours, the Americans were usually spread out in a number of areas of the village as they helped the peasants in civil action support.  At night time, the Marines were together set up in their nightly ambushes, protecting the village from terrorist attacks.

Communications between the young, mostly teenage Americans and Vietnamese needed to be constant.  The young Marines really had to know, the best they could, who they were talking and interacting with.  Anyone of the Vietnamese could be a terrorist or terrorist supporter.  The terrorists could be anywhere and everyone.

Communications could be positive as well as extremely negative.  At least two times a week, the communists would generate intelligence reports that hundreds of communists were coming to wipe out the CAP team of Americans.  Because some CAP teams did get wiped out by large scale attacks, the Americans had to prepare mentally as well as physically for the possibility of these threatening large attacks.  It was like getting an almost nightly death sentence.  The young Americans had to wait until the night was over to see if the reports were real.  It was psychological warfare, where the damage would take it's toll from night to night as well as a toll for a lifetime.  Death threats, that come often, are not something the human mind would easily forget.

Being such a small isolated unit, the Marines were always saving each other.  Jack was credited by some buddies on risking his life to save three of his buddies during an intense action.  A mother and father of one of the Marines got in touch with Jack's parents and thanked them for Jack saving their son.  Everyone had to do their job. Everyone counted on their brothers.  The Marines were together and ready to fight to the last man. (They didn't have that many to start with.) Some days, there were only 4 Marines out there in the village.  Surrender to the communist terrorists were never an option.  (This attitude of never giving up would help Jack later in life when he faced evil and fought against corruption mostly alone in his state government.)

 The evil, unscrupulous Vietnamese communists hated Americans living with the peasants. They even placed bounties on each of the young Marines' lives.  Jack would often joke with the other Marines that the communists only had a fifty cent bounty on his head.  The terrorists wanted the villagers to believe all the lies of how evil American troops were. After all, the communists working with the American news media, and Leftist organizations back in the United States, already had many Americans believing these lies and evil about their own troops.  (Drug-Crazed-Heartless, Baby-Killers and Village-Burners)

Using terror and fear as their weapons to keep the people in line, the communists wanted the people to support and supply them. The unscrupulous terrorists could not compete against the truth. For that matter, evil can never compete against truth.

Whether the Americans came from the streets of New York, Chicago, L. A. or Dallas; whether the Americans came from large or small farming families, they had many of the same values of the Vietnamese peasants. The most important being ‘friendship.’ The young Americans had their rifles, but their most widely used weapons of choice were friendship, kindness, respect and trust. The Marine Corps’ Combined Action Program (CAP) had a nickname, ‘The Peace Corps Volunteers With Rifles.’

Mostly the Americans, who served in the small CAP Teams, were volunteers. But because the communists hated the Americans living with the people so much, many CAP teams were getting wiped out to the last Marine. But the Marines never lost a village to the communists.

During these periods, the program could not get enough volunteers. Marines were assigned to serve in the villages. John ‘Jack’ Cunningham was one of those assigned. He received his orders for CAP, even before he left America. Back in California, he heard all the nightmares of serving in CAP. The eighteen year old New Yorker even heard that CAP was a suicide squad.  Jack was scared of what did he get himself into, but he knew that he was well-trained and ready. The thought of living with the people was scary, but it also sounded very interesting for this New York eighteen year old.

Like most Marines and Navy Corpsman who served, Jack did his job, plus some extra. Like most CAP Marines, he enjoyed the people. Many times, he helped the U.S. Navy Corpsman with the daily lines for treating minor cuts and bruises of peasants.  Anything more serious than a cut or bruise the Navy Corpsman would handle.  If the Navy corpsman could not help the peasant, an U.S. Army medical helicopter would be called in and the peasant would be taken to a U.S. military hospital in Da Nang.  Helping care for the Vietnamese people was a joint effort by each of the American military branches.  (If the American people back home would have believed the truth that they were not being told by the American News Media, the Vietnam War would have ended in a more positive way, especially for the Vietnamese people.)

Jack and his close buddy, George Dros also became the CAP team's demolition men.  They blew dud rounds ranging from hand grenades on up to a 500 pound bomb that did not explode from an air strike on some terrorists..  They were also responsible for blowing up terrorist installations, mines and tunnels.  Their five minute on the job training did not prepare them for the common problems dealing with bad fuse lines.  All to often, they had to walk (crawl) back to piles of explosives that did not blow because of bad fuses.  Some times the fuses just burned slower and exploded, while George and Jack made their way back to reblow the piles.  Being eighteen, they laughed at the close calls as if they were dealing with fire crackers back home.  Laugh was the only thing they could do, because they still had to do the same thing tomorrow.   

The combat was heavy and there were many occasions of night and day combat actions. Everyday there were patrols and ambushes set up by his CAP Team. During three separate actions, he was wounded by shrapnel. He received one Purple Heart for one of the wounds. And he still carries around some of the medal and sufferers from rib damage and pain from the RPG bomb blast he was targeted with.

The Marine Corps' Combined Action Program (CAP) was a great success in the 114 Vietnamese villages it served.  The Marines never lost a village, which Jack is extremely proud of serving in.  Fifty years later, many Marines, who lived in the villages, still retain their close friendships with Vietnamese peasants.

Jack Cunningham had a number of Vietnamese friends in his Duc Duc Refugee Village. But seven months after Jack left the village with the last group of Marines, who lived there, the Communist Army and terrorists burned the village to total ash and massacred hundreds of innocent men, women and children.  Jack felt that a piece of him died the day he was told about his village's massacre.  To this day, few people have heard about the Duc Duc Refugee Village Massacre.  Some people just don't believe it actually happened.  Why would the communists just massacre their own people.  (Over the years, Jack, himself has battled and built a number of internet websites to keep the memory of the people of Duc Duc Refugee village a live.  Jack felt that evil like that should never be just forgotten.  It could easily be repeated on the innocent again.  It's a premise that he still strongly follows in his current 18 year battle against some New Jersey State corruption.)

After the Vietnam War, Jack went 18 years into a successful IT (data processing) career. He got along with everyone. He used many of the same tools that he used with the people of the Duc Duc Refugee Village: friendship, kindness, respect and trust.  And he added 'Leadership' and quickly became Project Manager of the large, health insurance corporation Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield.  Before long, he had a staff of 17 computer experts working for him. Based on Marine Corps' training and attitude, no job was impossible.  With no college, he had a great skill of knowing people. He learned it from living in the village. His computer programming staff became his CAP Team.  That's when PTSD started to take him out.

Combat PTSD is like a huge, iceberg-like onion.  There are many separate layers of thoughts, fears and memories.  If a combat vet is lucky, each layer stands out and surfaces at a time. With the right help and support, one layer at a time can be peeled away, understood and trained to deal with through tools of therapy.   It's when multiple layers surface at once when the real problems come.  It's like a ten lane expressway coming to a one lane tunnel.   All a PTSD sufferer wants is the thoughts, fears and memories to stop.  To stop Immediately.  But for everyone, who knows a little about PTSD, there is no easy-magic switch.  Instead, they are told to reach out for help.  They are told that people would understand...  They will get help and support.  Americans do really care.

Jack knew he was having problems before he went out on disability, but back then the name PTSD was just coming out.   He was having major problems dealing with survivor guilt.  He was told by many fellow vets to reach out for help.  Jack ended up in a VA hospital for PTSD. He ended up having a total of 6 hospital stays for PTSD just for the survivor guilt.   It's was during an unscrupulous New Jersey Supreme Court fraud cover up that is described below that Jack's stress level increased again that more VA hospital stays were recommended by doctors. 

About 11 years into the PTSD, with five kids, 2 of them minors, Jack got divorced. It was the first time, he faced big time discrimination for PTSD. The discrimination did not come from his ex-wife or her lawyer. The discrimination came from his own lawyer and his own law firm that he paid to represent him. Jack was dumbfounded.   The corrupt lawyers never communicated with him, had him fall into a four-month divorce default because of their gross negligence, where his two minor children could be taken away, openly overcharged him, false-billed him, came to court unprepared, etc, etc. etc. They had a field day tag-teaming Jack in and out of court.  The law firm was pushing every PTSD trigger, Jack had and than some...   He was even battling chronic rib, neck and back pain (RPG Bomb Blast from his village days).  His unscrupulous, corrupt law firm, Maynard & Truland's unprofessionalism had his PTSD stress level so increased that a team of Federal VA doctors recommended that he enter into a VA hospital 45 day stress unit.  (It is well documented in his official federal VA medical records.)  At the time, he could not go into the hospital because he could not trust his own law firm.  The corrupt law firm lawyers were more concerned about themselves and Jack strongly felt that their carelessness and greed would impact his fatherly custody rights.  At the time, Jack was already in a four-month divorce default, because of their gross negligence.     

Jack could not stop them from their 'malicious' legal malpractice and 'malicious' ethics violations.  (I write 'malicious' malpractice and 'malicious' ethics violations because the Maynard & Truland law firm completely understood that Jack Cunningham suffered from PTSD.  Every time Jack communicated with them in writing he stated that he had PTSD.  He was trying to reach out.  He did this not because he was looking for pity. Pity was the last thing he was looking for.  He wanted justice.  Just regular justice.  The same justice that every American deserves through the Constitution.  The Vietnam PTSD vet was begging that the lawyers would act professionally.  Jack mentioned his PTSD so many times in letters, James Maynard, senior partner of the Maynard & Truland law firm, mentioned it to the New Jersey Supreme Court in his perjury filled law firm's sworn certifications.) 

Regardless of Jack begging for the 'malicious' lawyers to act professionally, they had no need to.  Because one of their law firm's own attorneys also worked for the state's Supreme Court's Office of Attorney Ethics and was well-protected from above. Robert Correale was the Vice-Chairman of the local New Jersey Supreme Court Attorney Ethics Committee.   There was tremendous power and influence differential between Jack and Robert Correale.  Jack was a PTSD Vietnam vet and Robert Correale was working for the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Vice-Chairman of Attorney Ethics. Unscrupulous, Robert Correale carried tremendous influence with local lawyers, courts and even judges that Jack would later learn first hand.  

  The exhausted veteran could not get a lawyer to support him, because no career-minded New Jersey attorney wanted to go after the New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics.  It would be career suicide.  Jack had to handle his full battle alone.  But he was also writing to numerous New Jersey politicians in the hope that someone in NJ State Government would stop this Obstruction of Justice by the New Jersey Supreme Court Office Of Attorney Ethics.   Again, he tried to reach out for help.  But no one took the lead.  Most New Jersey politicians just played silent and never returned Jack's letters.  He was alone in his battle.  Fighting New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics Vice Chairman Robert Correale, the Maynard & Truland law firm and those in the New Jersey Supreme Court protecting them, Jack felt he was back in his village daily battling terrorists. It was endless, but he could not give up.  It was a feeling that Jack would not wish on his worse enemy.  The State of New Jersey was not only completely failing Jack Cunningham, Jack felt that they were using his disability to protect their Supreme Court Vice Chairman Robert Correale and his Maynard & Truland law firm. 

This feeling became all too clear, when Attorney Ethics Vice Chairman Robert Correale openly mocked Jack twice for his PTSD disability without question in Robert Correale's own sworn Certifications to the NJ Supreme Court.  Correale's and his fellow Maynard & Truland attorneys' sworn Certifications were filled with perjury, false and misleading statements.  They had all the power that the NJ Supreme Court was giving them without question even though they had no supporting evidence with their certifications.

Besides, eighteen years ago, who would believe a PTSD disabled veteran over the good name of a New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics Vice Chairman.  Almost everyone just didn't believe it actually happened.  Why would lawyers and a law firm just commit legal malpractice and ethics violations against their own client.  Jack felt very alone.  The silence of New Jersey politicians and state agencies that Jack wrote to helped the New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics maintain their criminal cover-up. 

The only thing Jack could do was tell his VA PTSD doctors and therapists, take his VA medicine and try to keep from committing suicide due to the exacerbated stress they were causing him.  He was also under VA hospital therapy for his chronic rib, chest and back pain.  But Jack did have tremendous, clear, easy to read evidence against these New Jersey State terrorists.  He was using Maynard & Truland's own contract, invoices, court filed letters and court filed documents.

His five kids meant everything to him.  Besides being his children, his kids were another little CAP Team.  Surrender to a gang of corrupt lawyers and corrupt state officials was never an option.  (Just like surrender to communist terrorists was never an option.)  But what they were openly doing to Jack would drive an average father without PTSD into a family-court meltdown.  Jack was a lone.  He was doing a great deal of praying.  And he was asking his family and friends to pray.

This was only the start of a 18 year-saga to bring them to justice, along with those in high levels of New Jersey State government and courts, who protected them.  There would be open written lawyer-perjury to the NJ Supreme Court, verbal perjury in court, a Superior Court transcript strangely going missing before it could be used as evidence in two levels of court.  The list of corruption, cover up and criminal fraud goes on.  And even after 18 years of Jack battling, the New Jersey Supreme Court justices, state politicians and state officials are still protecting Robert Correale, his formal law firm Maynard & Truland, along with the state's image.

Jack Cunningham could not give up trying to bring justice to these evil, high level state officials and court officials, because they can easily do it again to another PTSD veteran and average citizen.  It was the same premise he had while serving in his village.  Never give up against evil.

Even after 18 years, he is still waiting for the day an honest federal investigation and or honest New Jersey State investigation is going to finally review his hundreds of pages of evidence that he has collected from the start of this New Jersey Supreme Court fraud, discrimination and the denial of his Due Process Cover-Up.  He still continues to reach out to average, Americans who really care about veterans.  However, he wishes that more Americans understood.

 

Jack Cunningham's charges still, and have always centered around, New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics, NJ Superior Court and NJ government officials attempts to deceive, discriminate, obstruction of Justice using acts of fraud, cover up and manipulation of his Due Process as a plaintiff against a corrupt (former) NJ Supreme Court Official Robert Correale and his Law Firm, Maynard and Truland. 
 
 Back in May 2017, Jack did get some great support from his Congressman Josh Gottheimer, when the congressman wrote to the federal Department of Justice (DOJ) accusing the New Jersey Supreme Court of Fraud.  You can read the congressman's letter to the federal DOJ below.  But Congressman Josh Gottheimer cowardly backed off his support and became part of the cover up when asked to direct a letter directly to the New Jersey Supreme Court.  After all, the congressman is a New Jersey lawyer himself and will need his law career back when he leaves congress.  Accusing the New Jersey Supreme Court of Fraud is not a good or smart, attorney career move.
 
Please email Congressman Josh Gottheimer's staff at  Kay.Kastner@mail.house.gov and ask why they cowardly backed off their Jack Cunningham letter to New Jersey Supreme Court Justices accusing them of a criminal cover up for their Office of Attorney Ethics, PTSD discrimination and denial of Veteran Jack Cunningham's Due Process.

Decorated and extremely proud of being a Vietnam Veteran, Jack Cunningham never wanted pity for his disability.  He just wanted justice from the top layer of the New Jersey Corruption Swamp.

I hope and pray, the Federal DOJ, and The State Of New Jersey sees it too. 17 years is a disgraceful denial of justice for any citizen, and especially a veteran, who bled for Justice and Freedoms of ALL American.

New Jersey Corruption a Vietnam Veterans Fight

By Faye Higbee  Posted October 14, 2017  

Jack Cunningham is a US Marine Vietnam War Veteran (Purple Heart recipient) from Sussex, New Jersey. For over a decade, he has battled for justice in the State of New Jersey, but has continually come up against a system that appears to protect itself against intrusion. His complaint has been in the hands of the Department of Justice since May, 2017.

What happened that he needed to file a complaint? He had been served with a divorce after 25 years of marriage. He was threatened with loss of custody of two of his children, which for someone with a 100% disabled rating from PTSD, caused panic. He hired Edward Buschico, an attorney from the Maynard and Truland law firm. But neither the attorney nor his law partner Joe Truland,  ever responded to the court or to Mr. Cunningham, which caused Mr. Cunningham to end up in “divorce default,” and a court hearing was set.

After  attempting to obtain a response from the law firm, Jack contacted the State District 10 Committee on Ethics, who simply responded just a few days before the court hearing: ‘ we can’t help you, go get another law firm.’ Too late to do so based on his income and the proximity of the court hearing. He would have to represent himself, since he had not received any information from the law firm.

Here is an excerpt of his narrative:

 

When the court case was announced, Jack was about to move up to the defendant chair when a lawyer introduced himself to the court as Maynard & Truland attorney Robert Correale and he was representing John Cunningham in the Case management appearance. Jack was completely dumbfounded, who was attorney Robert Correale and what happened to the divorce default? What happened to the divorce attorney Edward Buschio and why were the attorneys switched, and when? He had received no written or verbal communications from the firm that his representation was officially switched and wondered if the law firm was allowed to switch attorneys like that without notifying him or asking for permission.

At the end of the case management hearing, Jack tried to get some answers from Correale, but was brushed off by him claiming that he had no time to talk. (Two years later, Jack would receive some misleading, vague and even perjurious statements from Robert Correale about many of his questions when Correale was forced to swear in New Jersey Supreme Court Certifications. It was also in Robert Correale’s Certification that Jack would learn how Correale described this day’s first meeting between the two of them. Jack was even mocked for his PTSD in Correale’s New Jersey Supreme Court Certification.)

Corruption- Conflict of Interest

After digging into Robert Correale’s background, Jack determined a giant sized conflict of interest, and corruption. It should be noted here that the law firm of Maynard and Truland has been dissolved. Have to wonder if it had anything to do with the scrutiny Jack has brought to it. You can read his journey in the attempt to take on the NJ system here.

Here is a portion of a letter he wrote to Attorney General Sessions:

 

 “Robert Correale was a general-practice attorney for the Maynard & Truland Law Firm of Morristown, New Jersey. While practicing law at Maynard & Truland, Robert Correale was also serving as an assistant district attorney in a number of different New Jersey towns and counties.

correale_welbpage.jpg

According to the attached Maynard & Truland webpage dedicated to him, besides wearing all of these impressive and influential hats, he was listed as the local Vice-Chairman of the New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics District X committee. This position allowed him almost god-like influence around the state as well as his fellow attorneys of Maynard & Truland. Attorneys and even judges’ careers could end from his, and his committee’s judgments and decisions. Correale understood the influence he had around New Jersey, and his law firms’ partners Joe Truland and James Maynard were ready to use it to their advantage, and for one of their own client’s disadvantage.

Robert Correale and his fellow Maynard & Truland lawyers were able to use his considerable powers to block Superior Court Legal Malpractice charges and official NJ Supreme Court Attorney Ethics charges against them, but this was minor compared to the New Jersey’s Supreme Court, which openly allowed this unethical behavior and even openly protected them in the process.  In the past 16 years, ‘Reasonable Court Accommodations’ from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) could have helped me; instead, I was even mocked for my PTSD in sworn New Jersey Supreme Court Certifications…

…Besides a Superior Court transcript disappearing into thin air, perjury was permitted in Supreme Court Attorney Certifications and the evidence goes on.”

 

 In early 2017, Mr. Cunningham was able to send enough letters to finally get the attention of New Jersey Representative Josh Gottheimer.

On October 13, Mr. Cunningham was advised by Rep Gottheimer’s office that the DOJ was still looking into his case, but had not given them a timetable for response. He stated that his office has called the DOJ every two weeks for updates. Mr Gottheimer  has stepped out on an extremely short limb to help Jack Cunningham battle the New Jersey Supreme Court.

“Congressman Gottheimer can lose his attorney law career just as easy to New Jersey’s Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics as any other New Jersey State Attorney. But he stands up with his ideals and for the rights of his people… even a PTSD disabled vet, who has been fighting painfully-alone for his Due Process against New Jersey’s Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics for 17 years.” Jack Cunningham

As Jack and Rep Gottheimer wait for the Department of Justice to respond, one things stands out: for the first time in over a decade, Jack has an advocate. Rep Gottheimer is a Democrat.

“His support is giving me hope that I have not had in many years. that means a great deal to this PTSD survivor.” Jack Cunningham

Dear Mr. John "Jack" Cunningham 

­The DOJ is reviewing your information and have given us no timeline for response. Our office has been calling once every two weeks to check status. Please be patient as things at this level take time. I can assure that both you and our office will receive a response.

Josh_Gottheimer_letter.jpg

Dear Honorable Congressman Gottheimer,  

Please bare with me.  I’m a PTSD disabled combat veteran from the Vietnam War.  I’m not looking for any pity and any notoriety.    And I already receive VA health care and benefits.   I’m just looking for Federal Justice that is legally-guaranteed to every American citizen under the U.S. Constitution.  Nothing more and nothing less...

For the last 16 years, I have been looking for state justice, but I finally realize that for various and clear reasons, I’m NOT going to get it in New Jersey.  (As you read, you will find out why no attorney in New Jersey would have a career if they openly supported me on this.)

I have been under the Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) care for a number of years.  I am looking to bring federal justice to the State of New Jersey Supreme Court's Office of Attorney Ethics, and those Supreme Court justices, who have illegally protected those involved in this federal, state criminal cover-up and fraud.   (PTSD disabled PRO SE veteran plaintiffs deserve ‘reasonable court accommodations’ not denial of their constitutional civil rights.)

My attached letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions only explains a small part of this redress to Congress and the federal government.  I have hundreds of webpages on the internet that detail facts and hold actual , clear evidence.  (I also have numerous boxes of hard-copy evidence at various sites among family and friends‘ households.)  Why on the internet…  Over the years, I have used the kind and supportive opinions of tens-of-thousands of internet patriots from across the nation to keep me going on this.  

The fact that the Federal Veterans Affairs Department (VA) has assigned me a rating of 100% permanent and total evaluation effective March 13, 2000 can only explain part of how they accomplished their fraud.   My charges go much farther beyond harassment and discrimination of a disability.   Answers are needed on… How easily this was criminally accomplished by the State of New Jersey at the time, and how easily they criminally covered up this for all these years.  Also, how so many government officials had to get involved in the overall cover-up.  

You will read in my attached letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, why I have the ability to reach hundreds of thousands of patriots across America on computers.  My issue with New Jersey corruption is well-known on Facebook, Causes.com, City-Data forums, Delphi forums and other internet social platforms.   You could say I use my computer as a weapon of choice-communications, just like I used my M-16 rifle, M-60 machine gun and M-79 grenade launcher as weapons, serving in my Vietnamese peasant-farming village under the Marine Corps’ Combined Action Program (CAP).   (I used all three weapons in the same firefight.)

Please help me get some federal justice on this.  Not every PTSD disabled veteran has 22 years of working experience with computers and yet, they deserve to be heard too.       

       Sincerely yours,

   John “Jack” Cunningham

Subject:  New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics misuse of power to protect one of their own Robert Correale

With doing this, they openly denied a PTSD Disabled Veteran his Due Process and even allowed him to be openly mocked for his disability in New Jersey Supreme Court Sworn Certifications that were filled with perjury.

Dear Honorable Attorney General Jeff Sessions:

My reasons for writing to you and the Federal Department of Justice (DOJ) are twofold   One, to protect current and future, disabled PTSD veterans’ civil rights as plaintiffs in state courts and from discrimination of any kind. Secondly, my hope is for the Federal Department of Justice (DOJ) to file criminal charges against all involved in this government fraud and New Jersey State Cover-up.   My charges center around New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics, NJ Superior Court and government officials attempts to deceive, using acts of fraud and manipulation of my Due Process as a plaintiff against a corrupt (former) NJ Supreme Court Official Robert Correale and his Law Firm, Maynard and Truland. 

Robert Correale was a general-practice attorney for the Maynard & Truland Law Firm of Morristown, New Jersey. While practicing law at Maynard & Truland, Robert Correale was also serving as an assistant district attorney in a number of different New Jersey towns and counties. According to the attached Maynard & Truland webpage dedicated to him, besides wearing all of these impressive and influential hats, he was listed as the local Vice-Chairman of the New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics District X committee. This position allowed him almost god-like influence around the state as well as his fellow attorneys of Maynard & Truland. Attorneys and even judges' careers could end from his, and his committee's judgments and decisions. Correale understood the influence he had around New Jersey, and his law firms' partners Joe Truland and James Maynard were ready to use it to their advantage, and for one of their own client's disadvantage.

Robert Correale and his fellow Maynard & Truland lawyers were able to use his considerable powers to block Superior Court Legal Malpractice charges and official NJ Supreme Court Attorney Ethics charges against them, but this was minor compared to the New Jersey's Supreme Court, which openly allowed this unethical behavior and even openly protected them in the process.  In the past 16 years, ‘Reasonable Court Accommodations’ from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) could have helped me; instead, I was even mocked for my PTSD in sworn New Jersey Supreme Court Certifications. 

I am considered by the federal Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to be 100% "Permanent and Totally" disabled with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), due to my combat service during the Vietnam war.  Please do not make light of this letter and my charges because of my PTSD disability which has already caused me considerable difficulties in both my personal and public life.  PTSD is a nervous disorder, but it does not make you lose your intelligence. 
 
After 16 years of battling the State of New Jersey for my Due Rights as a plaintiff, I have a tremendous number of facts and evidence which will back up the charges I'm laying out in this letter, attachments, and internet links.  Before going out on disability for PTSD, I was a very successful project manager in data processing with a staff of 17 computer programmers, analysts, and project leaders at Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield in Manhattan.  Documentation and major analysis were keys even back then.

I know I can file a federal civil suit, but like in the past in NJ State courts, I would be forced to handle the federal case as PRO SE, because no New Jersey lawyer wants to go up against New Jersey's Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics. Win or lose, it could be a career-ending event for an ordinary attorney. Besides after 16 years, based on how these state officials used their state positions to illegally protect themselves and stifle Justice, federal criminal charges should be brought up.  I want to make sure this never happens to another PTSD veteran now or in the future.  It’s taken a major toll on my health and mental-well-being according to my VA medical records.

The VA, Congress and the American taxpayers pay billions of dollars a year to care and treat disabled vets suffering from PTSD. I appreciate all of the care and treatment that I have received over the years.  It has saved my life but I'm upset and disgusted by the unnecessary harassment and discrimination that exacerbates veterans' PTSD disabilities. Americans constantly hear about the discrimination and harassment cases of sex, race, and the physically disabled, but we never discus the discrimination and harassment cases of the PTSD disabled which can be just as harmful.

Besides a Superior Court transcript disappearing into thin air, perjury was permitted in Supreme Court Attorney Certifications and the evidence goes on.

I'm begging you.  Yes, I'm actually begging you to please review everything that I'm stating in this letter. I admit I've dedicated a great deal of time and effort with bringing these corrupt government officials to justice. This should never happen to another PTSD vet, disabled individual, or average citizen in the United States of America.

Thank God for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the great staff that have helped me during this time, and now I'm asking for my Due Process from you that the State of New Jersey has denied me for over a decade.

Sincerely and Truthfully,
John "Jack" Cunningham

Very Proud Vietnam Veteran 

Sussex, New Jersey 

Below is a actual copy of Robert Correale's webpage bio on the Maynard & Truland website.  Since he is no longer an attorney at Maynard & Truland, this page is not on their website.  In fact, Maynard & Truland is no longer an active law firm.  The partners went their separate ways.

Please note how this webpage below lists Robert D. Correale as the Vice-Chairman of New Jersey's Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics District X committee.  The page also lists him as Assistant New Jersey Somerset County Prosecutor and Jefferson Twp. Prosecutor.  All three positions carry a great deal of power and influence around the State of New Jersey.   (If Robert Correale himself, was found guilty of Attorney Ethics violations and/or legal malpractice all or some of the cases that he sat over in those three positions might have to be reviewed and retried.)

Robert Correale Carried Almost 'god-like' Influence Around The State Courts Of New Jersey

Government Fraud, Federal RICO (I.e. racketeering crimes) are involved in this below case due to the fact that a number of New Jersey state officials and even politicians have acted together to obstruct justice and deny John "Jack" Cunningham his constitutional rights.

Robert Correale was a general-practice attorney for the Maynard & Truland Law Firm of Morristown, New Jersey. While practicing law at Maynard & Truland, Correale was also serving as an assistant district attorney in a number of different New Jersey towns and counties. According to the Maynard & Truland webpage dedicated to him, besides wearing all of these impressive and influential hats, he is listed as the local Vice-Chairman of the New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics District X committee. This position allowed him almost god-like influence around the state as well as his fellow attorneys of Maynard & Truland. Attorneys and even judges' careers could end from his, and his committee's judgments and decisions. Correale understood the influence he had around New Jersey, and his law firms' partners Joe Truland and James Maynard were ready to use it to their advantage, and for one of their own client's disadvantage.

Correale and his fellow Maynard & Truland lawyers were able to use his considerable powers to block Superior Court Legal Malpractice charges and official NJ Supreme Court Attorney Ethics charges against them, but this was minor compared to the New Jersey's Supreme Court which allowed this unethical behavior and even protected them in the process.

However, the thorn in their side was never going to disappear. They picked the wrong client to abuse Correale's influence on. At first, they thought the client was an easy target, because he was a Vietnam veteran with PTSD. They never would have believed that after tag-teaming the PTSD veteran with law firm lawyers, and throwing every possible legal obstacle at him, the former Marine would be bringing them to federal court 17 years later along with the whole New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics for fraudulently and malfeasancely protecting them from justice.

Thankfully, there is no Statute of limitations in federal court when it comes to state government fraud. And based on all the clear evidence that Jack Cunningham has on the New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics and New Jersey governors' office, they have been committing fraud, malfeasance, obstruction of Justice, denial of a citizen's due rights based on deception as well as harassment of a PTSD veteran's disability and disability discrimination.

Some of Jack Cunningham's clear evidence of New Jersey courts and NJ government fraud:

Correale and his law firm Maynard & Truland took Jack Cunningham to Superior Court for an open bill but Jack counter sued against Correale and his law firm for Legal Malpractice. Correale represented his law firm. Jack was forced to handle his case as PRO SE (on his own), because no New Jersey lawyer wanted to go up against Correale, because of his obvious influence as the Vice-Chairman of New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics District X committee. Win or lose, it could be a career-ending event for an ordinary attorney. Because Jack was both representing himself and effectively disabled with PTSD due to trauma in Vietnam, he asked the court for "Reasonable Court Acommodations for his disability". After reviewing Jack's detailed evidence, Honorable Superior Court Judge Ronald Graves threw out Robert Correale's open bill charges and, against Correale's obections, Judge Graves added that Jack's charges of Legal Malpractice and his evidence warranted the law division for damages.

However, strangely enough, two months later when Jack tried to get a copy of Judge Ronald Graves court transcript where the judge said Cunningham's Legal Malpractice charges were valid, that portion of the transcript audio was missing. Jack's Law Division Superior Court civil case was then thrown out for lack of merit. Neither could he use Judge Graves court transcript in formal attorney ethics violation charges. This helped pave the way for Correale and Maynard & Truland to perjure themselves in sworn NJ Supreme Court certifications. 
 
In these same sworn, Supreme Court Attorney Ethics Certifications, Robert Correale disgracefully and openly mocked Jack Cunningham's PTSD disability without question.

When Jack Cunningham first started bringing formal Attorney Ethics Violation charges against Robert Correale and his law firm, the New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics refused to answer the PTSD veteran's letters. Jack sent out another round of letters to them, this time Cc:ing the NJ governor, the NJ Attorney General and key officers of the state legislature. Finally, the Supreme Court Office answered them and assigned the investigation of Correale and Maynard & Truland to the same committee that Robert Correale was listed to be the Vice-Chairman of District X. In words anyone could understand, the complaint about Correale and his firm was to be investigated by Correale which is a clear violation of attorney ethics as it pertains to conflict of interest. This assignment was done by the second highest official in this important NJ Supreme Court office but it all just led to another round of battles for Jack Cunningham to get them to recognize their major Conflict of Interest. The battles continued until Correale and his fellow Maynard and Truland lawyers were all cleared of all charges but not before perjuring themselves in Supreme Court Certifications.

Jack Cunningham's current goal is to get federal criminal charges brought against everyone involved in the New Jersey State Government cover-up.

Part 2

HOW IT ALL STARTED: The Cover-up is worse than the crime

After nearly 25 years of marriage and five children, Vietnam veteran John "Jack" Cunningham was served with divorce papers. The veteran, considered 100% permanently disabled by federal Veterans Affairs (VA) due to PTSD, was worried that his disability would be used against him in custody rights for his two minor children, which was a common practice for various reasons in divorce cases against PTSD vets. The Marine hired the law firm Maynard & Truland. At the first two meetings Jack drove home in a near-panic-like fear of losing his children's custody due to his disability. However, law firm partner attorney Joe Truland and the firm's divorce attorney Edward Buschico repeatedly highlighted that they were professionals and would do their jobs.

During the next few weeks, the client called a number of times to both the law firm's partner Joe Truland and divorce attorney for an update on the firm's response to the court and his wife and her attorney. Although he was promised by the office manager that he would get returned calls from the attorneys, he never did. Twenty-two days later, the PTSD veteran was notified by Superior Court - Family Division that he was now in Divorce-Default for his lack of response to the initial divorce papers. Based on now being in divorce-default for his lack of response to family court, the family court judge could make her ruling for loss of all custody rights. Jack's PTSD worsened dramatically as his greatest fear of losing his two children could now be made by a simple decision of the judge.

The veteran's weekly PTSD therapy sessions (well-documented) with a Veterans Affairs (VA) doctor were filled with talk of his fear of the loss of his children and triggering intense memories from the war, living 24/7 in an isolated peasant-farming village defending against Viet Cong terrorist fighters. Meanwhile, Jack made repeated attempts to get the firm's partner Joe Truland and divorce attorney Edward Buschio on the phone, but he still didn't receive the promised returned calls. Between the lack of communication from the law firm that he hired and getting notices about the default from the court, he thought the worst and it was triggering his most painful memories.

Out of desperation and total frustration, Jack wrote a heated letter to Joe Truland and Edward Buschio in the hope that they would start acting professional and communicate with him, the family court and his wife's attorney. Even after writing the letter, he still did not get any return communications from his own law firm. However, He continued to receive notifications that he was still in divorce default for lack of his activity to the court and his wife's attorney. More phone calls to the law firm were never returned.

Jack continued to attend his VA therapy sessions where the impact of the divorce and his frustrations with his law firm was well-documented in his official Veterans Affairs medical progress records. It was even recorded that he should have his medicine adjusted so that he could cope better and that he might have to be VA hospitalized for the exacerbation of his PTSD.

Sixty-nine days into the contract Jack Cunningham signed with the law firm, he finally received a very brief letter from a Maynard and Truland attorney Robert Correale; a name he did not recognize. Robert Correale's letter briefly stated that he was starting on the work on his divorce removal; was an Invoice listing that the client was being charged for this divorce-removal at an extra $25 inflated hourly rate. He was being charged for their gross neglience at an inflated rate by a law firm attorney that he knew nothing about. What happened to the law firm's partner and their divorce attorney Edward Buschio?

With no answers to his prior questions and a growing number of new questions to ask, the client wrote another letter to Joe Truland and addressed it to Robert Correale a lawyer Jack had not known before. Once again, there wasn't a response to this letter or his continued phone calls. Whoever Robert Correale was, he was apparently just as bad in communicating back as the previous divorce attorney Ed Buschio was. Even worse, Jack received another notification from family court stating that he was still in default because there hadn't been a response from him.

Jack felt like he was losing his mind out of frustration, but he also felt strongly that he had to fight back against this gang of incompetent lawyers. There was custody of his two young children was at stake. Jack wrote a third letter to the Maynard & Truland lawyers. Again, when he received no response for his third letter, he wrote to the local New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics District X committee and attached supporting evidence. In his letter he highlighted the divorce-default Maynard & Truland, LLC. placed him in and the extra stress they were causing him. When Jack received yet another notification from Family Court that he was still in divorce default and there was to be a final court hearing on it, he wrote to the Family Court judge explaining his facts and presenting his evidence.

A few days before the final divorce default court hearing, the local District X committee of New Jersey' Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics wrote back and said that they could not help him; however, they simply recommended that Jack obtain another law firm without any other suggestions. It would be Two years later when Jack learned that Robert Correale was the Vice-Chairman of this same NJ Supreme Court Attorney Ethics District X committee. Again, this District X recommendation to get a new lawyer was just days before the final default hearing that Maynard & Truland, LLC. caused. Living off only his monthly disability payments from the federal government, there was no additional money to retain another lawyer even if it was a good idea and changing law firms just days before the default hearing was insane even to this "crackpot" veteran. He knew that he had to attend the hearing himself, plead for some type of reasonable court accommodations for his PTSD disability, and expose the lack of professionalism of the firm he had hired.

The day of the default hearing, with no responses back from his letter to the Family Court judge or any communications from Maynard & Truland's attorneys, Jack went to Superior Court to represent himself and hoped for some type of understanding or mercy. After notifying the court that he was there for the default hearing, he sat in the second row of the small 2 row courtroom and waited for his turn to be heard. In the back of his mind, he was hoping that the law firm divorce attorney Edward Buschio would attend, but he wasn't counting on it. The divorce attorney fell off the face of the earth as far as he knew. He had neither seen nor heard from Buschio since the day he signed signed the contract and paid the retainer. That same day, Buschio nastily stated that he know how to do his job. Extremely anxious, Jack didn't have the slightest idea what to expect during the default hearing, but at least he had made it there.

When the court case was announced, Jack was about to move up to the defendant chair when a lawyer introduced himself to the court as Maynard & Truland attorney Robert Correale and he was representing John Cunningham in the Case management appearance. Jack was completely dumbfounded, who was attorney Robert Correale and what happened to the divorce default? What happened to the divorce attorney Edward Buschio and why were the attorneys switched, and when? He had received no written or verbal communications from the firm that his representation was officially switched and wondered if the law firm was allowed to switch attorneys like that without notifying him or asking for permission.

At the end of the case management hearing, Jack tried to get some answers from Correale, but was brushed off by him claiming that he had no time to talk. (Two years later, Jack would receive some misleading, vague and even perjurious statements from Robert Correale about many of his questions when Correale was forced to swear in New Jersey Supreme Court Certifications. It was also in Robert Correale's Certification that Jack would learn how Correale described this day's first meeting between the two of them. Jack was even mocked for his PTSD in Correale's New Jersey Supreme Court Certification.)

Although Jack never received any sort of response from the Family Court judge about the letter that he sent the week before, he was sure it had some impact in releasing him from the divorce-default that the lack of action from his own law firm put him in. He was actually feeling somewhat optimistic for the first time since hiring Maynard & Truland to represent him. However, Jack would soon learn just how corrupt the firm and Robert Correale was.
 
There were a number of future situations, but this was really highlighted during the most important, final court arbitration.  Flamingly-narcissistic Robert Correale came to court totally unprepared.   For over two hours in a small court house room, he sat silent next to Jack as Jack spoke to his ex-wife and her attorney.  The misrepresentation given by  Robert Correale was so poor that Jack's own ex-wife later wrote to the courts stating about Correale's woeful, unprofessional behavior saying that Jack was, for all intents and purposes, representing himself.  In the end for that day, Correale charged Jack hundred's of dollars for his own representation at Correale $25 inflated rate per hour over the contract.
 

Veteran is fighting to help end the 'Stigma of PTSD' 

He's fighting back against New Jersey Supreme Court's Malfeasance, Fraud, Deception-Denying Of Due Rights 

FRAUD, RICO I.e. racketeering is also involved in this case due to the fact that a number of people have acted together to obstruct justice and deny you of your constitutional rights.

John "Jack" Cunningham always wanted to serve in the Marines and served he did. Just one month after he graduated from the revered New York City's Power Memorial Academy he volunteered for service. He had grown up watching patriotic films on television about the heroism of America's military in conflicts like World War II and Korea; his older brothers had served in the military: one in the US Army, the other in the Navy. A brother-in-law, who Jack was close to, served in the Marines during the Korean War in the 1st Marine Division at the Chosin Reservoir - "The Frozen Chosin".

 
 At 18 years old, the skinny New York City boy thought he knew so much.  His high school, Power Memorial had boys from around the city and from around the world.  He was about to learn more though; much of it things that no eighteen years-old should never know.  Jack knew the battle was going to be intense, with many hardships and violence, but he didn't know it was going to be as traumatic, rewardless, and somewhat disgraceful when he came home.  This was a different and especially unique time for America's fighting men and women.  The parades of honor and respect were no more.  This type of negative attitude toward our military would last for many decades...  And Jack, like so many other Vietnam Era vets, were about to learn it the hard way.  They were going to fight this war alone.
 
 Eventually, Jack's dream of serving in the Marines came true and he went to boot camp at Parris Island (famous for its depiction in Kubrick's take on Vietnam Full Metal Jacket). After his training, Jack, who was now nineteen, was sent to California where he received orders from the Combined Action Program (CAP): he was to go to special training school in Da Nang. Jack had watched war movies when he was younger but this wasn't a movie on tv; this was Vietnam.   He had no idea that he would endure a number of life-altering experiences that would be jammed into one short year, but he wanted to serve for America like so many brave and honorable Americans before him and, like all Marines, he was extremely proud of his Marine uniform picture that he earned while in Parris Island Marine Boot Camp.
 
 The small CAP units- the ones he served with- served round the clock in Vietnamese villages where they defended the villagers from various levels of terrorist attacks. The young American Marines used their weapons of war, but they also used friendship and kindness just as much and at times, even more.  The warriors treated the people using fundamental human instincts and character and were aptly nicknamed "the Peace Corps volunteers with rifles."  The goal of these American Marines were to teach the peasants a better way to fish and farm, not hand them fish and rice.  This truth was the complete opposite image of our military, what the American news media was highlighting every night.
 
 Eventually the truth about the Marine Corps' Combined Action Program became far more ominous: many times, CAPs were killed almost as soon as they were replaced. The tiny units consisting of only a handful of Marines and a U.S. Navy Corpsman per village were attacked often and without warning.
 
 The U.S. Navy Corpsman were special and unique.  They were there for caring for the Marines, but also the daily, long line of Vietnamese villagers needing regular health care.  The Marines, including Jack, helped with bandaids and giving babies soap baths. Villagers with more complicated health conditions would be sent to a Marine base by helicopter or Jeep.  Regardless of the health condition, payment was nothing more than a smile. For the young Americans supplying the health care, it was like a new TV episode of MASH everyday.  No Vietnamese peasant was ever turned away, and many friendships on both sides were formed.  The United States Navy Corpsmen became popular village celebrities.  Jack even heard years after the war that one Navy CAP Corpsman, Doc O'Brien personally paid for his village's school to be built.
 
 At first the CAPs consisted of Marines who volunteered for the units, but as more and more horrifying stories of violence, brutal conflict, and high casualties began to spread, Marines had to be assigned.  For some CAP Teams, they were known as Suicide Squads and for most CAP units, they did not even have a full squad of Marines living in their village. On paper, the teams were a little more than a fortified squad.
                           
 Jack was assigned to the Duc Duc resettlement village where conflict almost immediately greeted him. There were many times where death was certain- times that many of us who have never been in the heat of battle could ever understand. There is no question of Jack's and the other CAPs bravery. Like in all wars, for most Americans in Vietnam bravery was routine.  Unfortunately, stories of Cap units stretched far too thin, beating the odds, and saving the lives of villagers are hardly told. Far more people know of the tragedies like the massacre of My Lai village where it was the atrocities of Americans rather than the many stories of those like Jack's.  The American News Media and Hollywood became extremely rich from pushing fake news stories and lies about the military's callous treatment of the Vietnamese.  Most American people would believe what ever the news media and Hollywood put out. After all, why would they lie...
 
 Viet Cong terrorists loved using the tools of extreme violence on innocent village people.  To the communists, everything was terrorism.  The more vicious, random and heartless the attacks were on innocent people, the more control they had over the families of the village, and only the small American Marine CAP Teams stood in their way.
                                 
 The Duc Duc Resettlement (Refugee) Village that Jack's CAP 2-9-2 unit defended had a population in the thousands while, with the exception of a handful of villagers who fought alongside the Americans, there were just on average of eight marines and as few as four at any given time. Four teenage Americans in a Vietnamese peasant-farming village of thousands.  There were no 'safe-places' for these American college-age kids.  But the Marines were not looking for any safe places.  They were there to help and protect innocent people like American service men and women have always done throughout our country's history.
 
 The confusion of which villagers were sympathetic to the US forces and which were sympathetic to the Communists created a situation rife with paranoia. There were constant rumors of communists infiltrating the village. Communications between the CAPs and the villagers was often mangled by language barriers. Enemy propaganda circulated constantly exploiting the CAPs obvious vulnerabilities, especially the size of the units.  Threats of the units being wiped out were almost daily.  Intelligent reports of hundreds of communists coming to attack the Marines and village kept everyone on extreme edge.  Regardless of the bigger odds facing them, the village-Americans were there to protect the innocent people. They were true to their motto: "Semper Fi- Always Faithful". By then, it was in their blood.
                                 
 Jack was wounded three different times in and around his village of Duc Duc.  He received one Purple Heart, because the other two wounds were minor.  During one of his units' daily patrol's, he stepped on a large booby trap that never exploded.  During one intense combat action outside the village, Jack's buddy George Dros of Burlington Flats, NY credited Jack with saving his life and that of two other Marines when Jack intentionally made himself a target for Viet Cong terrorists in order to save his three buddies.  During the attack, Jack switched weapons between his M-79 grenade launcher to his buddy's M-60 machine gun and another buddy's M-16 rifle.  He did this in the hope of giving the terrorists the illusion that he was the better target.  It worked.  The terrorists concentrated all their fire on Jack, and his buddies were able to be saved.  His brothers made it.  That is all that Jack cared about.
 
 However many times, Jack's worst moments weren't during heat of battle but the rare moments of calm when he could actually process what was going on: the fear of attacks at any moment and the paranoia that the enemy might be hiding amongst the same people he was trying to protect. Beyond that was the bigger picture: he didn't know who he was fighting or why he was fighting. Back home, his generation and many others were divided between those who had their doubts but didn't voice disrespect and those who protested violently. In May 1970, the shooting deaths of four anti-war protesting students at Kent State made this same mental conflict even worse as the line between countrymen and enemies blurred even further.
 
 This extreme stress and pressure at such a vulnerable time left a permanent impression on Jack. The fact that the local communists had a bounty on each of the Americans' heads added to it.  The uncertainty of enemy attacks, the frustration with the treatment of his own countrymen, and- most importantly- the confusion over what the ultimate goal was with the war created the perfect storm in his head. At this time, Jack's unit was shocked to find a Viet Cong tunnel that contained $5,000 in American green currency, $3,000 in military currency, and- most painful of all- boxes of clothing donated by students from the Berkley University in California. Students the same age as Jack were protesting and supporting the very enemy killing off Marines and Vietnamese peasants left and right. As small a gesture as the clothing was, it was the worst stab in the back Jack could have ever gotten from his peers back home in America.  He felt that he and his buddies were being betrayed by those who should have been supporting them.  Jack felt very alone.   He wondered how World War II veterans felt, when they were battling in their war.
 
On July 17, 1970, Jack was part of a five Marine patrol outside his village that got pinned down and surrounded for hours.  Another CAP Team from another village had to come to their rescue.  However, it too got pinned down.  Marine helicopter gunships and two Navy F-4 fighter jets were forced to bail out both CAP Teams.
 
 In August 1970, an event would occur that would create the 'Survivors Guilt' which would never leave him the same again. After switching patrols one morning with another Marine, Robert J. Pierce, a surprise attack would result in his replacement losing his legs then dying from the blood loss. Before dying, Robert was calling out to his mother and his brother Marines.  With his tour of duty almost over, Robert was scheduled to leave Vietnam in a week.   The tragic death would be one that stood out amongst the many other bloody incidents during Jack's time in Vietnam. In his mind, he was at fault rather than the enemy. If he hadn't switched patrols, Robert Pierce would be alive. Jack would remain haunted by the death long after he was safe from the daily horrors of the war.
 
 Around the time of Pierce's death, Jack would receive news and clippings that the Vietnam War veteran memorial in his hometown of Rosedale, Queens had been vandalized twice by protesters.  The anti-military protesters attacked by night like communist the Viet Cong terrorists. The names of the town's eight Vietnam War dead were desecrated with tar and black paint.  Like all of the other anti-military, and anti-veteran attacks that Jack was hearing about while serving in his village, the attack on his hometown's veteran memorial was taken personally.  He had attended the dedication of this same memorial himself on Memorial Day 1968 less than two years before serving. Later in 2002, Jack built a simple website to the Rosedale Vietnam Veteran Memorial showing the newspaper pictures of the anti-veteran attack.  
 
 Already bitter, this information served to only rub more salt in Jack's wounds.  Many of today's patriots would almost feel the pain he was under.  Jack was still alone.  But he knew he still had to do his job even while conditions worsened when word began to spread that the CAPs were going to pull out of the area. The villagers felt betrayed and their relations with the Marines cooled considerably. Night watches consisting of constant wakefulness left Jack and his Marine buddies perpetually exhausted. Any wrong move meant death; any wrong action meant further ostracizing from the villagers. His very sanity became a delicate tightrope as the extreme conditions weighed down everyone around him.
 Finally, President Nixon's withdrawals of the troops freeing Jack from his torment. He left in February 1971 but leaving the battlegrounds would be bittersweet. A few months later in March and April, successive Viet Cong attacks destroyed to ashes the Duc Duc resettlement village killing hundreds of the same villagers Jack had previously been tasked to protect.   The massacre of Duc Duc left him with another lasting impression.  He had many Vietnamese friends in the village and some good Marines died over the years to protect it.  He wanted people to know the real truth.   Years after the war Jack would build a number of websites and webpages dedicated to the village and the Marines who died.   Although the physical wounds that he received protecting the village were minor, he left a major part of himself in Duc Duc.
 
 Jack returned to the United States with the memories of the war, and stupid questions of how many babies he was forced to kill and did he ever have to burn his village down, but as time went on, they seemed to fade away. There were some events in the future that would create even more emotional turmoil: the fall of Saigon in 1975 would be especially painful as he recounts how he felt when he learned the news: "A lot of sadness and a lot of anger, even rage. I felt everything was a pure waste." To put the 1975 fall of Vietnam into perspective, just thirty years before, America was celebrating the triumphant victory of the Allied forces against the Axis. Now, nearly forty years after the fall, many veterans of the Iraq War know a similar bitterness when the country they fought to liberate fell into the hands of ISIS.
 
 Life began to slowly go back to normal. Jack settled on Long Island, eventually moved to northwestern New Jersey, started a family, and began a career programming, analyzing and, later, managing computer systems at Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield in Manhattan.  His experience with the military proved to be useful for him as he became increasingly more successful. By the 1980s, life was good for Jack. He was thought highly of by his supervisors, senior management, his peers and was responsible for up to 17 employees. Although he had more employees on his computer staff than in his CAP Team, Jack began to think of his team of computer programmers and analysts as his own CAP Team.  His Subscriber Data Processing Team were now his buddies.  And he protected them just like he did his CAP buddies.  His co-workers were like his brothers and sisters.
 
 He became a project manager making a great salary.  To many in the large company of over 10,000 employees, he was Mr. Cunningham.  To himself, though, he was still just Jack.  The job was somewhat stressful but he handled it well before things began to change unexpectedly in 1985.  Stress from the job was starting to trigger some intense memories of the village and 'Survivors Guilt' started drawing its ugly head.
 
 In 1980, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder was added to the DSM-III by the American Psychiatric Association. PTSD has since become closely associated with veterans from Vietnam and for good reason: 31% are believed to suffer from it. While the severity of the condition can vary from patient to patient, it can be debilitating for those who have it worst. PTSD can manifest itself in minor ways for years as anxiety or intrusive flashbacks with very little effect on a patient's day to day life. Sometimes, years can pass before it causes serious issues as was the case with Jack, who began to experience serious problems around 1985 but managed to keep working for sometime while his condition slowly deteriorated.
 
 At the time, like many other Vietnam vets, Jack kept his thoughts, memories and feelings to himself.  Socially, he started to isolate, but he still was able to work at a high level.   Since he was having memories of the war almost everyday, Jack started writing down his experiences from serving in the Combined Action Program (CAP).  In a short period of time, he ended up writing 8 short stories of his village life.  He was writing about war, but more importantly, he felt he was writing about family- his brothers.
 
 Breaking through the stigma of PTSD was extremely hard.  Besides, no one really wanted to talk to Vietnam vets about the war and Vietnam vets did not want to talk to people who could not understand or relate.  Thanks to Hollywood, certain news-hound-celebrities, the news media and even some politicians, the image of PTSD Vietnam vets scared many in the general public.  The caricature of Vietnam veterans as lunatic baby-killers and village-burners was still fresh in many Americans' minds.  Jack's feelings of being alone became stronger.  To fight the negative feelings and images, Jack started letting family and friends at work read his short stories.   To his utter amazement people liked them and found them extremely interesting.  Many people asked to read all 8 stories.  Based on the feedback from readers, he started to think that maybe he could help change the negative image of Vietnam vets.  Jack wanted to fight back.  He didn't think that he was a hero, but he strongly felt that he served with heroes.  There were over two million real heroes that served in Vietnam.  Besides, having people read the experiences and stories was much easier than talking about them.
 
 With the grace of God and prayer, Jack finally reached out to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).  Using federal Veterans Administration's (VA) medications and therapy to cope, Jack carried on with life as usual, but with each year his memories weighed him down further. Finally, in 1989, he was no longer able to work. It is common with many who suffer from PTSD- like symptoms including severe forms of anxiety or depression- to become chronically unemployed due to the difficulties their condition imposes on them. In this day and age, there is far more leeway for someone with a mental illness to get help and recognition. In 1989, however, many people's knowledge of PTSD came from movies like First Blood where the main character John Rambo suffers from a psychotic break due to his experiences in Vietnam. PTSD veterans had been stereotyped as crazy and able to snap at any time. This belief caused many sufferers to remain in the shadows because of the fear of being ostracized for their shortcomings.  Far to often, brave and honorable veterans with PTSD were judged for the false and weak images of the stigma of PTSD.  Many professional people say that tens-of-thousands took their own lives, because of it.
 
 While Jack did seek help, he didn't get better. However, he continued his writing about his Vietnamese village life and his brothers-in-green.   He felt that Hollywood needed to tell the truth about Vietnam veterans.  He started to write to Hollywood movers and shakers.  Although he received a number of autographed pictures from stars, he did receive two very promising responses from two of his heroes:  Actor Jimmy Stewart and Movie Director John Huston.   Jack started calling his writing project CAProductions.    He added it to the internet in March 2001.  He wanted it all non-profit.  He wanted the truth out about America's Vietnam vets and that is all he cared about.
 
 Twice Jack would be hospitalized at VA facilities in 1986 and 1987 for PTSD; both times, he was sent gifts and support by his employees and friends. He seemed to have good support but in 1989, the memories of friends' deaths during the war created intense survivor's guilt. This, along with life's stresses, created the perfect storm. Oftentimes, those with PTSD will not experience worrisome symptoms until they've gone through an extended illness like pneumonia or influenza; others won't have symptoms until they enter a period of extreme stress like having issues at work or with family. With Jack, his own thoughts became his worst enemy. As the good memories started flooding back into Jack's head, the bad memories came just as fast.  He had no switch or filters to regulate his thoughts.  He could no longer function.
 
 Jack would continue in this way until 1996 around the time of the birth of his fifth child. During this time, he wrote four movie scripts to keep busy.  His first one was about his experiences in Duc Duc, about the loss of his friend and his own survivors guilt dealing with it.  His second script was about a Vietnam vet dealing with PTSD during the 1st Gulf War.  His third and fourth scripts were total fiction about young teenagers and ghosts who come to their rescue.  He did the last two to were get away from war, but writing them did not help at all.
 
 He had to be again hospitalized in a VA hospital for nearly four months because of PTSD which obviously caused problems in his personal life. The loss of two older sisters each to cancer within two years did not help.  As his mental state tore him apart, his domestic life caused him further pain. In 1999, Jack's wife filed for divorce. The divorce suit would be only the beginning of his struggle for justice as lawsuit after lawsuit exposed the corruption of the New Jersey justice system.
 
 Since the 9-11 terrorist attacks, most of America's hearts and minds were open to the sacrifices and truths of America's Vietnam Veterans. Jack's writing goal of trying to improve the image of Vietnam vets was no longer necessary.   The truth was coming out on its own.  But Jack still wanted to follow through.  He loved writing, especially young fiction dealing with ghosts and totems.  Stories of hope, family, communities, inspiration, history and inner strength.  His last script he called "The Spirit Lives On."
 
 Now, as the plaintiff, the Marine vet was facing a new battle with the New Jersey courts as the defendant.   A battle even more intense than he ever fought in.  In the end, Jack would want federal criminal corruption and fraud charges brought against a number of high level New Jersey Supreme Court lawyers for protecting one of their own
*
 To handle his divorce suit, Jack hired a locally well-known, law firm out of Morristown, New Jersey, Maynard & Truland, LLC.  When he hired Maynard & Trumand he did not know they were so well-known, powerful and state-wide influential (for themselves).  Like most fathers, he informed the law firm partner Joe Truland and his divorce attorney that his greatest concern was to get fair custody rights for his two minor children.    He also informed them in detail that he was PTSD-disabled from heavy combat in the Vietnam War.  He told the law firm's lawyers about his disability because it was a major part of his life and hoped that they would give him a little more courtesy (Jack would be totally wrong about getting extra courtesy, even though they were his own law firm). He also told them about his PTSD because he did not want it to be used against him in custody rights, which was common practice in veterans with PTSD divorce proceedings.  
 
He signed their contact, paid them an agreed upon retainer check that the law firm cashed within three days. He expected a routine handling of his case, but things only fell apart from there.  It was as if his lawyer and law firm did not care he had PTSD.  Sometimes, it felt like that they were even trying to take advantage of his own disability.   Eventually, the law firm Maynard & Truland even mocked his disability in sworn attorney ethics certifications to the New Jersey Supreme Court.  But it all just made him angry and motivated that much more.
 
 From the beginning there was no action from the law firm, court-required deadlines were missed, and Jack's needs were ignored. Jack's lawyer was not even returning his phone calls.  For whatever reason, the firm was grossly inadequate in their handling of the divorce suit even allowing for it to enter into default; a fact they neglected to tell Jack until it was too late. On the way out the door to visit his older sister (the third to have cancer and was about to undergo a major operation) at a NYC hospital, he was notified by mail from family court that he was now in divorce default for no activity on the case.  The misrepresentation given by the firm was so poor that Jack's own ex-wife wrote to the courts complaining about their woeful behavior saying that Jack was, for all intents and purposes, representing himself.
 
 All that the firm managed to do was overcharge him an extra $25.00 an hour over the contracted rate that they had agreed on.  What made it even more disgraceful was Maynard & Truland law firm's own printed Invoice which stated that they were billing Jack for their own Divorce Default removal.  The Maynard & Truland law firm was completely acting without attorney ethics.  To Jack, he felt that they were acting above the law and could not understand why they were doing this.  Again, he even thought that they might be taking advantage of his PTSD disability.  This was his own law firm that he already had paid.  His stress was building, and it no longer had anything to do with the divorce but with his own law firm's unprofessionalism. He wanted to fight back.  PTSD vets were not there to be taken advantage of.  Just like he fought to save the innocent people of the Duc Duc Refugee Village, Jack felt he was battling to save future PTSD vets and even average New Jersey citizens from discrimination and fraud.  No one should be above America's laws.
 
 Jack was rightfully angry over how he had been treated and took his case to the New Jersey Supreme Court local, State Attorney Ethics Committee. This would lead to even further problems for Jack since a lawyer of Maynard & Trudell actually served on the Ethics board: Robert Correale. Correale's firm's website listed him as not only being on the same committee, but as their Vice-Chairman. This was the same lawyer who was supposed to serve on Jack's behalf in court but never once spoke and was clearly unprepared. Jack now faced an enemy far more stealthy and ruthless than that of the Viet Cong decades before. He was now going to take on the cold, faceless courts of New Jersey and, later, the Federal justice system. 
                                                                 
 In total, Jack was in 'Divorce Default' for almost 4 months, because of lack of any activity from his law firm.  It was up to the judge, but he could lose all custody rights to his children, because of this default.  To say that he was worried would be an understatement.  He was terrified about losing his children.  That is why he hired the law firm in the first place.  He reached out to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) repeatedly for advice but they could not give him legal advice.  His doctor documented it all very well in medical records and recommended hospitalization.  In spite of how he was feeling, the disabled vet felt that he could not go into the VA hospital.  His children's custody was more at skate.  Jack felt he had to battle his own law firm.  His VA doctor increased his medicine.
 
The first response Jack received from the State Ethics Committee was one that simply stated he should get a different attorney. Get a different attorney while in a divorce default that his first attorney got him into.  This, of course, was far from satisfactory: what about the horrible representation Jack received by the law firm and, by extension, Robert Correale? A document, sent by Correale to the same Ethics committee that he was on the board of, defended his law firm. The ethics violations that Jack alleged were to be investigated by- of all people- Robert Correale and the other lawyers on the committee, who Correale supervised!
 
 In any other setting, this would be considered an extreme violation of the legal system, a major Conflict of Interest in the very least.  However, it was permitted. A series of questionable events would occur which illustrates the grave injustices that Jack has faced for over 17 years. Correale would use his influence on the Ethics committee to remove himself and his law firm, Maynard & Truland from blame and, later, court recordings related to a future law suit (mentioned below) "disappeared" before they could be officially transcribed.   Finally, if that weren't enough, Correale mocked Jack's struggle with PTSD and brought a lawsuit claiming that he owed his law firm an additional $2,000.                                      
 
 Superior Court Judge Ronald Graves, who handled Maynard & Truland's open bill lawsuit, threw their suit out but not before adding that Jack gathered enough evidence to warrant his own lawsuit for Legal Malpractice against Robert Correale and his law firm Maynard Truland.   Jack felt it was like a dream.  He was going to get justice against this gang of corrupt lawyers.  And he did it; at least his evidence did.  He felt, "Not bad for a PTSD vet."
 
 A few months later, Judge Graves' remarks could not be recovered for the court transcript when Jack was preparing for his legal malpractice suit.  The part of the court audio where Judge Graves said that Jack's evidence warranted the law division for damages had apparently gone missing.   Supreme Court Attorney Robert Correale and his law firm Maynard & Truland had friends in high places.  How all of this occurred seems like a wild conspiracy that could only be pure fiction but it's all true and it plagued Jack daily.  His mental state was badly deteriorating and Jack's VA doctors wanted to hospitalize him for the exacerbation.   Already reeling from a divorce and his ongoing struggles with PTSD, he had to deal with the bureaucratic nightmare of the New Jersey legal system. He had to continue fighting.   Besides, who would ever believe this was happening to him.  He was a PTSD vet.  He was all alone in this fight just like so many times thirty years before in his CAP unit in Vietnam. 
 
 Soon, though, Jack wouldn't be alone. Many are familiar with the Marine Corps motto: Semper Fi or Semper Fidelis which is Latin for "Always Faithful".  Indeed, the Marines were always faithful to Jack as a number of the Marines he served with in the past- and a number of other vets who learned of his struggle- reassured him that he was NOT alone in his fight.
 
 Jack led a letter writing campaign that went all the way up to then-governor James Mcgreevey, who sent a return letter.   Jack's letter stated that if the Office of Attorney Ethics had Robert Correale own State Attorney Ethics board investigate Jack's case it would be a major Conflict of Interest and ethics violation.   After months of writing and Ccing everyone in the New Jersey State Government, Jack finally received a letter from New Jersey's Supreme Court Director of Attorney Ethics that they realized there was a Conflict of Interest if Correale's own attorney ethics committee investigated him and the Maynard & Truland law firm.  This was a small victory for Jack, but he went on even further.  The investigation was moved to another nearby ethics committee and a few of the involved lawyers were told to write up sworn certifications of what was their version of Jack Cunningham's charges against them.  One of the law firm's partners, Joe Truland was strangely excused from writing up his own sworn certification.
 
 In about two weeks, the Maynard and Truland sworn certifications were released to the NJ Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics, along with copies to Jack.  These Certifications were filled with perjuries, vague, misleading and contradicting statements.  Robert Correale had the most detailed certification, which was filled with the most of these vague and misleading statements.  Being a NJ Supreme Court Attorney Ethics committee member himself, he was probably used as the biggest liar for a reason.  In two areas of his sworn certification, Correale even openly mocked Jack's PTSD.   Nothing was questioned.  Strangely, the certifications were accepted by the committee supervisors without question and with no supporting documentation or evidence as well.    What made it even more bizarre was the fact that Jack himself supplied detailed evidence and documents:   the firm's own contract, invoices, court filed letters, court filed documents, and even official-federal Veterans Affairs Medical Records that highlighted the impact the corruption and fraud was having on Jack's PTSD.  All the committee supervisors had to do was review Jack's evidence and compare it to the certifications.  The committee sat on their decision for months.  In a shocking twist, Robert Correale and his law firm were cleared of any wrongdoing despite obvious perjury in their certifications.  The fact that Superior Judge Ronald Graves' transcript went missing was never addressed by the Office of Attorney Ethics and all of the evidence that Jack presented was never mentioned.
                                  
 Jack's letter writing campaign did not die down. He would write and send key pieces of evidence to New Jersey Governors Richard Codey, Jon Corzine, and the current Governor Chris Christie, but he never received a return letter from any of their offices.  Like all politicians, before news cameras, each of these New Jersey governors praised veterans and highlighted the importance of giving veterans the rights, respect and benefits that they so rightly earned but they could not even return a letter to Jack addressing New Jersey's denial of his due process.
                                
 Jack's life has not been all bad, though. He remarried and has been with his wife Joan for fourteen years. His family only grew both in strength and in numbers during Jack's legal battles: he has five children and three step-children along with nine grandchildren. He and his ex-wife Alice- who herself recognized the overwhelming odds Jack is up against- remain on friendly terms. Their children, now adults, are all successful.  As strange as it may sound to many, Jack and Joan have even been on a number of family vacations with his adult kids, their children and with his ex-wife; so much so that people have often teased him that he has two wives.  He has even stayed close with his ex-wife's family and to them he will always be known as Uncle Jack. He still goes to regular VA therapy sessions for PTSD and now resides in Sussex, New Jersey.
 
 Jack is something of a celebrity both locally and on the Internet because of all of his successful veteran advocacy causes. Using his data processing skills, he runs a number of websites.  He still keeps mostly isolated though.  Four causes he is especially proud of:  Helping to save the USS ARIZONA Marine Remembrance Memorial at Pearl Harbor.  (See Below)  Writing a poem and getting it produced addressed to all Vietnam veterans from America.  To this day, some Vietnam veterans have asked to be buried with a copy of it.  The third and fourth causes are helping to push every year for a Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day on March 29 and getting a song 'Welcome Home' by Eric Horner and Lee Greenwood (God Bless The USA - Proud To Be An American fame) written and produced about Vietnam vets.   Everything Jack does is nonprofit- sometimes, his causes actually cost him money.  But he says that he does them, because he gets more out of it than money can bring. 
 
 In February of this year, Jack finally received even more support for his efforts when a veterans foundation agreed to connect him to a team of pro bono lawyers for his future federal court case.  But for reasons beyond Jack's control, the pro bono lawyers were unable to supply Jack with their support.  Once again, he's forced to represent himself to bring justice to New Jersey Supreme Court Office of Attorney Ethics. However, Jack has a history of fighting alone, or with a few tough supporters.  He remains just as determined and strongly believes that this type of fraud and corruption coming from this extremely important state agency can be triggered against any and all average New Jersey citizens, or any citizen across our nation, who do not have connections to power and corrupt influence.   Jack does not consider himself a PTSD veteran who is looking for pity; just an average, American Patriot fighting against injustice in government.
 
 The proud, Marine Vietnam veteran knows  the federal civil court battle will be even more intense and complicated than he ever fought.  It's just him as PRO SE and his strong evidence up against the name and reputation of the New Jersey Supreme Court.   In the end, Jack would want federal criminal corruption and fraud charges against a number of high level New Jersey Supreme Court lawyers for protecting one of their own.  He would also like federal charges brought against the tag-team of Maynard & Truland lawyers who started it all.
 
 Above all, there is no argument about Jack's heroic military service. His actions were above and beyond the line of duty and he should be recognized for it rather than discredited as a crazy, weak, unbelievable old man. The VA's motto comes from the words of Abraham Lincoln: "To care for him who shall have borne the battle" and these words should influence all of our attitudes to the soldiers who have returned home with even greater personal struggles in their future. Should our government- who swore to take on the responsibility of caring for every last soldier living or dead- be allowed to throw Jack to the curb? His story is just one of many other struggles that veterans have been forced to face , and it's a grave injustice that we can allow this to happen in this great country. So ask yourself this: Should outrages like these be covered up and forgotten, or should they be used to open our country's eyes so our country's finest can be helped in the future?

Constitutional Attorney's Comments:

John "Jack" Cunningham's case against the State of New Jersey is interesting.

Statute of limitations issue is bogus… fraud has no limitation in federal court, and Statute of limitations runs from the time the fraud is found… It is an act to deceive, an act of fraud, an act to manipulate due process, - sanctions should be implemented – One of many cases spell this out… Referring both to the objective and subjective elements, we have held that qualified immunity would be defeated if an official "knew or reasonably should have known that the action he took within his sphere of official responsibility would violate the constitutional rights of the [plaintiff], or if he took the action with the malicious intention to cause a deprivation of constitutional rights or other injury." Harlow et al v. Fitzgerald, 457 U.S. 800; 102 S. Ct. 2727; 73 L. Ed. 2d 396; (1982). (Emphasis added)

File a civil suit in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey (federal court) - file this Civil Complaint under U.S.C. 28 §1331, federal question, civil actions arising under the Constitution, under U.S.C. 42 §1983, a civil action for deprivation of rights, and U.S.C. 42 §1985 a civil action for Conspiracy to interfere with civil rights against all Defendant’s you can list (growing list below)… you can do it pro se and file an application to proceed indigent… all documents are on the District of New Jersey (federal court)’s web site…  

State courts have concurring jurisdiction over this type of civil suit, it can be filed in state court BUT Federal Courts are more easygoing with Pro Se writings, minor errors in format and rules etc… And if a state attorney represented anyone, the challenge here would be if he was authorized to do so… i.e. an application filed for their service, defendant within the scope of employment… etc… if not.. it was fraud…

Check out the principles of the Noerr-Pennington Doctrine… first Amendment Rights… you may have further elements to build your case…

Void Judgments, move to vacate previous judgments for harmful errors, constitutional violations, fraud… etc… all forms and docs you need are on the court web sites.

USS ARIZONA Marine Remembrance Memorial at Pearl Harbor

Band of Marine Brothers,

One of our own needs your help. He has mine.

As you obviously know if you are reading this, Jack Cunningham's "Proud CAP Marine" blog and e-info efforts reach a great number of Marines, friends and families of Marines as well many active duty Marines from the past. I've found it to be a powerful tool.

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 Jack, 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.

That campaign showed me the power of the internet when focused on a meaningful issue. As I'm sure you also know, Jack has had an ongoing battle with the State of New Jersey regarding the way he was treated by corrupt politicians. We can help him. Marines take care of Marines. I ask you to join me in a vigorous e-mail campaign (And phone call campaign) to Congressman Scott Garrett as well as Gov Jon Corzine (And now Governor Chris Christie) to demand an investigation. The contact addresses are listed below. We never leave a Marine on the battlefield - lets not leave one to the criminal politicians. Join me in protest.

Semper Fidelis,
Colonel John R. Bates USMC (ret)
