Its bad to see this happen to these soldiers. I didn't know SGT Durbin to well. As for "SMOKE" Dawson, I served with him during OIF III. I miss him to death. This was no accident. This guy meant to do this then STOOD DIRECTLY over SSG Dawson when he was on the ground begging not to kill him and shot him two more times. They should hang give him the DEATH PENALTY. LETHAL INJECTION
RIP "SMOKE" I LOVED AND STILL DO LOVE YOU LIKE A BROTHER I NEVER HAD.

The Army still has hanging on the books. Traitors should swing.

I don't know anyone involved my son is a Marine, I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often. They don't just have to deal with brutality of war but sometimes the brutality of other Marines/ Soldiers is worse. :( What a sad thing for all involved.

I was at jurf when this happened. Durbin and Dawson were both great men and it was an honor to serve with them. Anyone who says anything bad about them didn't know them, and their opinions mean nothing.
RIP guys
