If the alligations are true and any American soldier lost their lifes due to these idiots behaviour they should be tried for murder and face a firing squad. It's hard enough for our loyal soldiers to be there let alone have their own causing them issues.

Glad to see the media machine is working. As vets you have already hung these four Soldiers, with out knowing any of them. Wow, you call your self vets, way to leave your own out to dry. As someone who is currently active duty....the three of you media hungry nut jobs should look yourself in the mirror. Its always easy to sit on your ass and watch tv and make judgments, do your research, then wait, and when this is over and the four get exonerated, I'm sure you and the rest of everyone out there will apologize....oh...wait, I know that wont happen.

Chris, you my friend are off your rocker! Exonerated?! What world do you live in? There is no need to do any research, This is a military investigation, any and all information given to the media comes straight from the military. The United States Army doesnt condone any form of hazing, PERIOD! There are other ways to train and discipline a soldier. Resulting to extreme physical training (hazing) is a clear sign of poor leadership and lack of professional maturity. And for you to criticize our fellow vets comments is clearly disrespectfull on all counts. They have also served in a time of war and know what its like to lead outside the wire. If anyone understands both sides of the story and has the right to make a concious judgement it is our veteran bros. Dont expect any apologies from them either, they didnt apologize to all the hippies who boo-ed them when they came back from nam, they certainly wont apologize to you!!!
