Family of Greg Buckley is Demanding Answers

Marine Greg Buckley died in Afghanistan in 2012 while at the gym with his fellow soldiers. When Greg was working out an Afghan teenager burst into the gym and fired off a whole round of his Ak-47, killing Greg and his two friends.

Greg was supposed to be returning home just a few days after the event happened, making this story even more upsetting to his family and friends. Later reports showed that the Afghan teenager was actually a hired sex slave to the chief of the Afghan police. This sex slave was not the only Afghan allowed to roam among the military base, Greg’s father quoted Greg about his and his fellow marine’s stating, “We have a bad feeling that we are not going to be able to ever get home. I think these people here are going to turn on us. He says they’re just not right.” This freedom to roam resulted in the Afghan teenager, who goes by the name of Aynoddin, to have complete access to all the areas including where the weapons were held.

Since then the Buckley family has wanted to know more about the incident, but has yet to receive the information they have requested. “He shot my son point blank with an AK-47. Shot him four times in his chest and once in his neck. He was in the gym with a pair of shorts and a tank top on, how is that allowed?” expressed Greg’s father.

The family wanted to see the autopsy reports and the official reports surrounding the incident, but the United States Military has denied them access and has shrugged off their requests. This leaves the Buckley’s thinking that some prime evidence or information is missing from this case. The family has decided to sue the Marines and the Department of Defense in one last attempt to seek the facts that they are craving to know.
