Abuse reflects on all soldiers

Friday, May 14, 2004

To the editor:

In response to Speak Out comments: I as a soldier am deeply embarrassed by the lack of professional behavior on the part of the accused soldiers in Iraq. Their actions, whether they realize it or not, reflect upon soldiers and service members as a whole. We need the Iraqi people's trust and cooperation if we ever hope to withdraw our troops. Humiliating them is not going to help our cause. This type of behavior is neither encouraged or tolerated in the U.S. Army.
