The word I’m getting from people in his unit is that when his first sergeant called him in, after word came down from the brigade commander after S&S’s inquiry, Marquez went all secret squirrel on the first sergeant and said he couldn’t talk about his time in Cambodia. Of course, the 1SG wasn’t hearing that shit and got Marquez to fess up to his deception.
I’m glad that Stars & Stripes came around after being dickish yesterday. They made the story more about me than Marquez, which feeds my massive ego and makes me feel a little dickish myself. But S&S is off of my shit list now. Thanks to Martin Kuz, the author, for not blowing off my emails when I made the first inquiries.
