Doing Battle Area Clearance in a RED ZONE with no security, no weapons, under orders to work anyway, appearances are everything don’t you know

“Allegedly” being blown up in front of  numerous witnesses,  six of whom “allegedly” caught the rest of the frag, he was medivac’d to Acinetobacter Alley, Dogwood Field Hospital in Baghdad.

He was then medivac’d , along with some “Alleged” Acinetobacter to Landstuhl where he was left without a  Medivac for five days.  This in complete disregard of the doctors orders to get him out of there ASAP  so  he would not lose his leg, but still his employer/carrier


The military got him to Walter Reed for an extended visit in the “Alleged” OR , ICU, and Ward 57, before CNA so proudly medivac’d him to a civilian hospital.  You would have thought they parted the Red Sea

Merlin, we sure hope that your “Alleged” Injuries turn out to be nothing more than that, Alleged.

Think of how different your life will be when both of your legs and both of your arms and hands work again, you can hear again, you can think clearly again, your back, neck, head do not cause you constant pain, you can sleep at night, your leishmaniasis “heals on it’s own” as they said it would seven years ago.

You’ll be able to work at your profession again, providing a humanitarian service, valued as a person, not treated like a criminal who has already been convicted,  relieved of his rights by an Administrative Law System and those they serve.  You’ll have that money back in your bank account that was drained to cover expenses and will have added considerably more to it.

Your daughter can get the last seven years of her childhood back.

Oh, Please ALJ, make it go away,  make it all be “Alleged”………..
