I’ve written about the problem with the growing amount of dick measuring in military and veteran circles before. But the drama never quite seems to stop, and at every turn it seems to get more out of control.
On February 17, we shared a link to an article by Spencer Walker and Daniel Racca at Warfighter News, concerning the history of Eddie Ray Routh, the accused killer of Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield. We didn’t share the entire article, instead putting the first few paragraphs up and then directing to Warfighter News. Both Spencer and Daniel were credited with the work, as was appropriate.
The reaction has been…disturbing.
Two of the Warfighter Foundation’s board members, one a SEAL widow, the other the daughter of a SEAL, resigned over it. One even said she would rather be connected with an article put out by ISIS than with SOFREP.
