I came across your story and it fits a lot of what I experienced in
the brig in 1969, but differently. I was locked up there from August
through October, and an initial weekend in April of that year, and I
was beaten and kicked and clubbed unconscious the first time, and one
guy had his arm stomped on and broken. I saw one guy abused to the
point of near starvation and he barely survived, and I have other
stories. I have made contact with a few other guys that were locked
up there and they all say they suffer from PTSD, and I think I do too.
Anyway, I am glad you wrote what you did and if possible I would
like to connect with you further and discuss some of what went on
there and the Navy at that time and their attitude and cover-ups. I
can't find anything regarding my time in the brig other than that I
was there, but there was more and it's gone, I think. Maybe you can
help dig some of this up.
Thanks for letting others know the kind of situation that was
happening then and there.
