Not sure if you remember a young Lance Corporal that was under your ward with 2/8, but I remember you. We have all gotten back in touch with eachother through the magic that is facebook. Please know that you have touched and infuenced so many during your tour with 2/8. I can tell you that you helped teach me what it meant to be a Marine, and I have never forgotten.

Also I am a Cop now and have been for for over 19 years. I have seen many cases where people have found themselves in situations like the one you found yourself in that landed you where you are now. The fact that you didn't hurt anyone wasn't an accident. If you wanted to you could have. YOU DIDN'T!

I as everyone that remembers you with 2/8 knows that other forces not rooted in evil drove you to your actions that fateful day. You are and remain in our hearts that honorable, noble, caring Sergeant of Marines that we remember so fondly. I hope these words can offer you some measure of comfort in those moments of weakness we all feel from time to time when we think life is hopeless. Never have I meant these next words more than I do right now... SEMPER FI!

We all understand that a Marine takes responsibility for there actions, this you are doing. However, we all believe that the sentence given to you was not just as we know the real David Linley. Rest assured that you are not alone in this battle of survival, a band of brothers stand behind you and pray for you daily. You are a great man David always remember that. You did make A LOT of differences in many peoples lives (and still do)

I only wish you could see some of the funny things being said on the internet, almost as funny as the rescue plan they had for us in Beirut to save the hostages and recovery of Lt. Col William Higgins body.(man MOD-LOC Sucked).

I guess the State of Illinois does not understand the brother hood of the United States Marine Corps and how we look out after our own. BE ADVISED, that we are checking in on a regular basis to this site, so keep writing and posting, we will do the same.

A letter was sent today (7/19) and others have said they are doing the same. Also some of the 2/8'ers live close to you, let us know if you can receive visitors, as some have voiced interest to come see you, if allowed... Let us know

It is such a pleasure to feel that spark of excitement about learning new things. I'm glad you found someone who inspired that in you. I found that too, long after I had sleepwalked my way through high school and it changed my life. Thanks for writing about your experience.

Dear Mr. Perez,
I would like to hear your views on relations between people of different races in prison, especially in Mass. From the recent protests in Georgia and California it appears that prisoners are banding together across racial divides to address injustices in the prison system. Do you see signs of prisoners in Mass. working together for common goals? What issues bring people together?
