Sgt.Linley This is Martin Silva(lcpl) served with you in 2/8 comm. i want you to know I appreciated all that you did to try and help me when I was being abused by certain staff ncos. I did eventually get out of that unit and have a great experience for the remainder of my service.
We all speak and think very highly of you and always have and no matter what the circumstances you will always be a great Marine . Stay strong and keep the faith

This is powerful work, Mr. Wesley. May God Bless and Protect you and may you be released from the inhumane treatment you have received.

Brother, I remember how hard you tried to develop me into a "proper Marine"! Thank you! Never forget that you made positive impacts on more young souls than you can count,
may God bless you!

Hi William, I am happy to have found you since leaving the corps, but saddened by the place I have found you in. I live in Iowa now which is quite close to Illinois and would love to visit some time. I do not know the process for visiting but I will find out, and hope that you would let me know when will be a good time.

I treasure the time we had in the corp and learned much from you. I only hope we can continue to connect outside the corp. Hope to hear from you soon.

I have left another message on another one of your blogs so you may have to search for it. As you can see, you have left a positive impression on many of those you served with.

I am sure if we did a survey of other people you were with it would come back the same, Damn Great Marine and Friend. You have the Marine Brotherhood here to support you, no questions asked, no explanation needed. Our Blood runs green, through and through.

I read also another Blog where you posted "Another Day In Paradise", and it was quiet good. I would encourage you to continue your writing as it could be a best seller.

When you get a chance to post again, let me know anything you may need, want or wish you had. I will see what I can do. Dave as many have said, you are not alone and as Marines we do not leave anyone behind. You are in all of our thoughts and Prayers. I will write you privately so we can share more.

AGRAAAAAAA-Ten-Hut....There is a Marine on Deck

I served with you at 2Bn 8Marines and during 89 Med Cruz. I am so sorry to hear what you had to go through and will go through over the years. You were always a man of great compassion for his troops and ensure there welfare came first. I wish we would have kept in touch or been there for you in your time of need. If there is anything I can do, do not hesitate to ask.
Copied and pasted from Brent but I feel the same way as he does. You may of remembered me as Lcpl Palmer. My prayers are with you and hang in there I think you may of even told me that a few times.I hope things do work out the best for you and for better or worse Marines will always be with you.

Semper Fi,

Buddy Palmer

Some staff! The head nurse practitioner was really playing word games with you. But I don't think she was totally at fault, you did say you didn't want the medication when she asked you, which is like saying you don't need it because you're not sick. But then again, I don't quite understand your ranking system, could you explain it?

Sounds like you didn't like your childhood, or that you wanted it to be over. You wanted to leave your Grandma the first chance you got, but when she needed help later in life, you were there to help her. Perhaps as repayment?
