SAS Sgt. Danny Nightingale Released

We ran a story recently about SAS Sgt. Danny Nightingale and our desire help him out.  I spoke to his lawyer via email and he was thankful for our community’s support in signing the petition to set him free.

I’ve personally seen situations where guns and war trophies are authorized to bring back and I can understand how things could go astray. It may sound crazy to many but at least in the SEAL community, there’s a tremendous amount of leeway in keeping weapons, bullets and other things in your locker. With Operational Tempo high and quick turn-arounds I can see how this happened. I was also as shocked as most of you were by the severity of the proposed charges against a guy that devoted the better part of his life to serving his country. Glad a fellow brother can go back to his family and rebuild his life.

    The family now need financial support. To avoid scams this needs to be run by an organization or person who is well known so anybody out there please let's get together and raise some money for this brave man who made a mistake but hie wife and family should not be punished with financial ruin.

    Wonder what we might do to have that Courts Martial verdict reversed as well?

    @lusso maranello Well said!

    The UK is anti-gun -- and even anti the right to self defense -- beyond all reason. I'm happy with the result, but an ordinary citizen who wasn't a member of his country's elite warrior caste would have been left to rot in prison.
