A Clue - Updated

If you read MilBlogs of any shape or size, I'm sure you've seen the uproar that has followed the Scott Thomas story.

Well, Michelle Malkin announces that he's Stepped Out of the Shadows! They've given us a name and a unit.

Let's see what happens now. Because, seriously, if this is NOT authentic someone is gonna figure it out. And my bet is sooner rather than later.

Updated 2:30pm: Just got back from some calls and see that Uncle Jimbo over at Blackfive has a smack down and picture or our Scott Thomas. Huh. Should start to get real interesting....

But the coolest thing, and the main reason I'm linking is he's gathering information so we can kick off "an email campaign to reboost their [A Co. 1/18] morale". A most excellent idea. It's gotta be a kick in the gut (major understatment) to have this put out their by someone in your own "family". These men and women need to know they are still supported. That not everyone believes everything we're reading. More details as they are available.

I was just reading about him at Hot Air... he certainly came up with some wild copy... but he himself asserts his 'writer' status. Novelist, I'm thinking... :/

I served back in 1964-1970. Before a whole bunch of advances in reconsructive plastic surgery. This was also when there were still WW2 Vets in uniform. Burn injuries were, if not common, there. We saw them around, victims of shipboard and aircraft fires, men who had been in those Sherman tank deathtraps. I knew a man who had been hurt when a flame thrower blew up on another man.
The servicemen of the 1960s had nothing unkind to say about these people. There may have been the types who would say to these men what this Scott T. Beauchamp claims to have said, they would not have dared. The other Snuffies would have stomped a mudhole in their ass.

Karma will be kicking some serious ass soon, I hope.

What a waste of a life.
