Dear Mr. Webster:
Our freedom gives us choices and now you have a choice to apologize for doing unto others what you would not want done to you, your son, your family or friends. I can understand your reasons , but I cannot allow your actions to represent me as your neighbor in Soldotna.
"Semper Fidelis" -- Always Faithful is the motto for the courageous men and women of the U.S. Marine Corps. With that same courage, you could admit your mistake, apologize, plead guilty and accept the consequences of your actions and maybe make a contribution to the Quaker Peace Movement, like the other Marines who give of their time and money to help anyone at Christmas.
You can honor your son, Soldotna and our country by regaining your self respect and the respect of your fellow citizens. It is your First Amendment right to be a courageous man and be an example for your son and every other Marine and soldier. And your neighbors who also believe in freedom within the law.
