LtGen Mattis's letter dismissing charges in United States v. Sharratt - UPDATED

We in the military justice blogging industry are a collegial bunch. Sacramentum has written about a very moving letter (Update: available here) from General Mattis to a Marine who had gone to an Article 32 for unpremeditated murder arising from the deaths of 24 Iraqis at Haditha in November 2005. Sacramentum has asked that I post the letter on As Sacramentum observes, it is well worth the read.

In the meantime, does anyone know who General Mattis's SJA is?

I have taken to using to post things... it coverts almost anything, and your viewers don't even need a .pdf reader (s.cotus @al&p)

LtCol Riggs is his MARCENT SJA (although he has been removed from some Haditha cases because of improper contact with the IO in Sharratt and Tatum's cases).

Col Ewers is his I MEF SJA
