Update & end of story on the NG Stand-Down


I just left both people involved with the incident that took place in the last few days. The soldiers do not want to pursue this matter any further, in any way shape or form. I was advised that the situation is being dealt with inhouse and there will be internal investigations into the conduct of certain ‘officers’ who started the poll and ordered certain persons held. The person allegedly being held was only there for a couple of hours.

No punishment will be handed down to any of the soldiers involved. I cannot give any further information as to names dates reasons units or places. This is in respect to my friends here. If this upsets anyone I am sorry but this is the way the soldiers want it. You have my deepest apology and I truly wish I had never spoken about any of this with my friends here on or FB. I will be posting no more information of this type due to the repercussions which could come from this.

  1. May well be. I was most curious when he laid down his rifle.

  2. I am confused??

    What the hell does that mean??

    Are we to believe the original story? Is he/they being knuckled down? Is the whole story a sham?

    Ok's leave me shaking my head. It ain't the first time. ...Are they for real? Anybody?


  3. Sounds to me like folks have been threatened to shut up or else.

    Being handled "in house"...yea right. I'd look for some to have an accident.

  4. While I have the overwhelming desire to call BS on this, there's just enough there to make it believable. The thing is, without full names and actual unit designations none of it is verifiable.
    True or not, it's a chilling reminder that a 224 year old piece of paper is the only thing that stands between freedom and tyranny.

    And your handle.:)

  6. No mention of unit or its location. A real journalist would pursue this story to the ends of the earth.

  7. That's in case the paper fails....

  8. As I've said elsewhere, this no longer passes the smell-test for me.

    SOMEONE in a unit full of men brave enough to stand up as they supposedly did would also have the balls to speak out - ESPECIALLY with OKs and the rest behind them!
