ABSTRACT
The article presents comments of the author on the article "Detention Center Conviction Highlights Supervisory Deficiencies." He states that Major Clarke Paulus is an outstanding Marine officer who the author believes will be vindicated. It is wholly inappropriate, however, for Major K. Houlgate to weigh in on the courts-martial of Major Paulus, and former Sergeant Gary Pittman, a reservist, because their clemency and appeals processes are still ongoing. Rather, he served in a special projects capacity at 1st Marine Expeditionary Force, responsible for providing air conditioning to units in theater.
