    As your facility Sr Commander I am so proud of you. Since Butler is Medical I am torn between my neighboring unit and another medical unit to cheer. I don’t care which one of you wins the competition – you are both winners in my mind!

    Are you aware of the fact that your photos are used extensively by scammers to extort money from lonely, gullible women? There is a strong indication that terrorists use this method to collect money to fund their activities. One would hope that the American military has enough IT knowledge to track down and stamp out such abuses. I am sure you are not the only soldier whose photos are abused in this way.

    hallo shiloh ben ook genaderd via face book met u profiel foto door de naam thomas weide zat op missie in kabul 2 weken mee gechat en heeft foto’s gestuurd naar mij en op het laatst geen goed gevoel kreeg en toen terecht kwam op de site scame en zo achter u echte naam gekomen en u foto’s gebruikt tenminste dezelfde foto’s van u Facebook en andere sites en doorgezocht en kwam steeds meer tegen maar was eerst ook slacht offer maar kwam er op tijd achter maar wil dat u het weet want wie volgt er meer en dat ze zo in u foto’s en profiel kunnen komen ik vindt dat ze dit moeten stoppen en zulke mensen moeten straffen en wat is nu de waarheid en echte naam het is allemaal mooi om waar te zijn komen zoveel verschillende namen tegen behalve deze naam thomas weide en daarom ga je denken is dit zijn echte naam of niet zodoende kwam ik er achter maar deze naam komt nergens in de scame voor en dacht eerst ook nog misschien zijn schuil naam ja wie zal het zeggen blijft nog steeds denken en een raadsel maar de verhalen wel steeds overkomen met wat ie mij ook heeft gechat en de waarheid een beetje heb terug gechat en daarna geen antwoord meer terug gekregen
