An Email from Beauchamp's Co. First Sergeant
The facade of the TNR stunt continues to crumble:
SFC McElroy, Iím not in the habit of answering these emailís. It would be far too many. I appreciate all the support from home and I can assure you that not a single word of this was true. Weíve been fighting this fight for quite some time. Numerous soldiers within my unit have served on several deployments and this is my third year as a First Sergeant in this unit. My soldiers conduct is consistently honorable. This soldier has other underlining issues which Iím sure will come out in the course of the investigation. No one at any of the post we live at or frequent, remotely fit the descriptions of any of the persons depicted in this young manís fairy tale. I canít and wonít divulge any information regarding this soldier, but I do sincerely appreciate all the support from the people back home. Again, this young man has a vivid imagination and I promise you that this by no means reflects the truth of what is happening here. Iím currently serving with the best America has to offer. I have worked and fought closely with every soldier within my company and they are consummate professionals in an area most people canít fathom. Iím proud of my soldiers and would gladly give my life for any one of them. Please continue to keep them with you in your prayers and thank God that we have these courageous men willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for their country, Americans, and the people of this struggling nation. Sincerely, 1SG HatleyThe email correspondence is listed in full at this particular 'chickenhawk's' site, The Foxhole. And by 'chickenhawk,' I mean Iraq war veteran.
