Marine Divulged This to His Father Before He Passed in 2012… We’re Just Now Hearing about It

Over the last couple of days, the United States was informed of the horrors happening to the Afghanistan youth, but the military has known about this travesty for years.

Marine Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley Jr. was shot and killed in the line of duty in 2012. He gave his life for his country. Before his death, he told his father, back stateside, something horrifying about what is going on in Afghanistan.

Buckley told his father in the last phone call they ever shared that he had been unable to sleep. He said the reason was that the sound of Afghan police officers and soldiers molesting young boys was keeping him awake.

According to a New York Times report:

“At night we can hear them screaming, but we’re not allowed to do anything about it,” the Marine’s father, Gregory Buckley Sr., recalled his son telling him before he was shot to death at the base in 2012. He urged his son to tell his superiors.

“My son said that his officers told him to look the other way because it’s their culture.”


This report matches up with another report by Sgt. First Class Charles Martland, a decorated Green Beret, who said he is being kicked out the service for punching an Afghan child rapist in the face.

According to the Army Times:

A decorated Green Beret says he’s being kicked out of the Army for losing his cool in 2011 and striking an Afghan local police officer — one who had allegedly confessed to raping a boy and then beating the child’s mother for telling authorities.

These disturbing reports beg the question, just what is going on in the Afghan military and why are we turning a blind eye? What are your thoughts about this story? Share your comments below and add this to your Twitter/Facebook timeline for discussion.

    This is all so sick. Why are we supporting them? How could military leaders turn a blind eye?

  2. It seems to me, one who has been raised in and married to the military, that any of our young people are putting their lives on the line for these animals. They do not deserve our involvement, and that their culture is as vile, perverted, sick and horrific we should leave them alone to slay each other – Not one American life is worth saving any of these people – we can’t alter history or change a culture – we need to leave these animals to devour each other.

    If you served in the Ghan you knew this was true and you knew what happened to you if you protested it. Of course Hussein’s generals will deny it because he has destroyed the real ones. Will be interesting to see how far this goes before his government shuts it down.

      This been going on since the beginning of time and just because the news makes a deal out of it they will continue doing it. It’s too bad we in the military( I am Retired AF) have to turn our eyes and ears.
