On the Dark Side in Al Doura – A Soldier in the Shadow

leave a comment »

If any a story of PTSD was tragic, this one is: “U.S. Army Ranger John Needham, who was awarded two purple hearts and three medals for heroism, wrote to military authorities in 2007 reporting war crimes that he witnessed being committed by his own command and fellow soldiers in Al Doura, Iraq. His charges were supported by atrocity photos which, in the public interest, are now released in this video. John paid a terrible price for his opposition to these acts. His story is tragic. ” Credits to Cindy Piester
