William Calley Admits Wrongdoing for My Lai; Remembering the CMC Whistleblower Who Brought it To National Attention

William Calley, the former lieutenant convicted of 22 counts of murder at My Lai, publicly apologized for the massacre of Vietnamese civilians on Friday. It is believed to be the first public apology he has ever made for the massacre that landed him prison time.

Few remember that CMCer, Ron Ridenhour, Class of 1972, exposed this corruption to the light of day. For more on Ridenhour, please read this post I wrote on the 40th anniversary of My Lai.
