Dear Fellow American,

Are members of our military second-class citizens?

I hope you said “NO” to that.

Because, if you believe in equal justice for our military men and women, I need you to sign your urgent JUSTICE FOR THE MARSOC 3 petition today. The miscarriage of justice that’s being inflicted on the MARSOC 3 — right now — is intolerable. Gunnery Sergeant Josh Negron, Gunnery Sergeant Danny Draher, and Chief Petty Officer Eric Gilmet are being railroaded into unjust court-martials — despite doing the right thing when no one else would!

They’re making an example of them — that’s wrong! Let me share with you what happened.

First, Josh, Danny, and Eric are “RAIDERS,” members of the elite U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC). Their legacy is from the Marine Corps Raiders of WWII. They were deployed to Erbil, Iraq after serving honorably and courageously on multiple combat tours. On New Year’s Eve 2019, they received permission from their chain of command to leave their base and enjoy some well-deserved rest and relaxation. After their meal, they headed back to base, but stopped first at another establishment popular with U.S. contractors. Some of the regulars had been drinking for a while prior to the Raiders arriving. One of the contractors had way too much to drink, made it clear he felt he was not being treated with enough respect by the Raiders, and picked a fight with Eric.

Thankfully, there were cameras inside the establishment that show Eric maintaining his professionalism and not engaging with the contractor even when the contractor got in Eric’s face. The contractor’s drunken behavior got so out of hand that the establishment kicked him out. Instead of calling it a night, the inebriated contractor decided to wait with a large group of his friends for Eric to come out of the establishment so he could continue the fight.

There were also cameras outside the establishment which captured everything I’m about to relate to you. None of the facts are in doubt.
