The Defense of Eddie R. Routh is claiming that his experiences in Iraq and Haiti caused traumatic experiences that ultimately resulted in him committing murder. In an effort to help the public better understand the post-traumatic stress and how it is unrelated to Eddie R. Routh, we are sharing Routh’s Official Military Personnel File with the public.
First, they say he was in combat in Iraq. That is false, he has no Combat Action Ribbon, which means he never participated in any combat action.
Second, they say he was on shore in Haiti cleaning up dead bodies. That is also false, he never lever left the ship.
