Subject: Feres Doctrine Glaring Disconnect

Greetings All,

All those mothers and fathers contemplating a military career for their sons and daughters must pay strict attention to the following BEFORE they consent to having their children assigned to the sandboxes of Afghanistan and Iraq.  Ask your childrens recruiters about Feres.  Ask their teachers!

This is indeed more ammunition for the abolition of the Feres Doctrine.  How much longer can it be sustained??? (1950)  Perhaps this is exactly why the Right to petition the government to seek redress for grievances was placed in the First Amendment--which begins with these five words:  "Congress shall make no law...."

Please forward to those who are affected by this ruling, including your elected representatives.

Bests,
John
