      US Marine's mystery "suicide" deepens

      Ernesto Cienfuegos
      La Voz de Aztlan

      Los Angeles, Alta California - December 3, 2004 - (ACN)
      This sad story came to La Voz de Aztlan in a
      roundabout way. It came to us after we published our
      report "Iraqi insurgent video shows graphic death of
      US Marines" and the video at http://www.aztlan.net/ramadi.wmv
      which shows the death of US Marine Private 1st Class
      Moises A. Langhorst of Moose Lake, Minnesota. The
      information was sent, after reading our report, by a
      resident of the small town of Moose Lake who
      personally knew Private Langhorst and another Moose
      Lake High School marine who died in Kuwait one month
      prior to Langhorst.

      It is difficult to say which death was sadder, that of
      19 year old Private 1st Class Moises A. Langhorst who
      was killed as a consequence of an Iraqi insurgent
      operation in Ramadi or that of 18 year old Pfc.
      Matthew G. Milczark who was found shot in a chapel at
      Camp Victory in Kuwait. Both were friends, graduated
      together from Moose Lake High School and both joined
      the marines at the same time.

      Whereas the death of Private Langhorst has been put to
      rest by the small town of Moose Lake and his family,
      that of Pfc Milczark has not. You see, the US Marines
      declared the death of Pfc Milczark a suicide, however,
      there is one small detail that really bothers the town
      and the family . . . the one gunshot that killed the
      marine was to the back of his head.

      No one who knew Pfc Milczark personally believes that
      he could commit suicide. His family has been pressing
      for information to no avail. They have contacted their
      local congressperson with no results and they are now
      concerned that the truth may never be known. What
      really happened to Pfc. Matthew G. Milczark?

      "When I talked to him 10 days before he was reported
      dead, he was very upbeat," said Milczark's stepbrother
      Derek Wood. Pfc. Matthew G. Milczark was a well
      balanced student and was elected Homecoming King the
      year he graduated. He was a star football player and
      respected as a leader by the entire student body. "He
      was a leader here, one of those kids you would see in
      the hallway who automatically had that respect from
      others," said Tim Caroline, superintendent of Moose
      Lake Community Schools. "He was a good kid,
      happy-go-lucky and always smiling."

      What then is the truth? Did Pfc. Matthew G. Milczark
      commit suicide by shooting himself in the back of his
      head? Did another US Marine kill him? Why is the US
      Marine Command keeping quiet about this and other
      marine suicides and why have they closed the
      investigation? The family of Matthew G. Milczark needs
      to know, but most importantly all Americans need to
      know. There is now an epidemic of US Marines
      committing "suicide?" and it behooves all Americans
      with loved ones in Iraq to find out the truth!
