Marine Under Investigation For Appearing at Trump Rally

A Marine that helped protect Hamid Karzai International Airport during President Biden’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan is under investigation for attending a Trump rally in Georgia. Capt. Kelton J Cochran, a spokesman for the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), is accused of violating DoD rules by attending the event.

The Daily Wire reports:

“The 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) has initiated a command investigation regarding LCpl Hunter Clark’s attendance at the event last weekend to determine if any DoD policies were violated,” Cochran said. “Any details pertaining to this incident are not releasable while the investigation is being conducted.”

According to Task & Purpose, the spokesman “did not specify what policies that Clark may have violated, but the Defense Department does not allow active-duty troops to ‘speak before a partisan political gathering, including any gathering that promotes a partisan political party, candidate, or cause.’”

Trump introduced Clark at the event as “one of the Marines who bravely served in Kabul during the withdrawal and helped evacuate children over the airport and over the airport wall.” The former president also reportedly reserved “13 empty seats of honor” for the 13 U.S. troops killed on August 26.

Task & Purpose noted that the rally was a “political event” but added that “Clark was not in uniform when he appeared with Trump. Nor did he campaign for a political candidate or suggest that service members follow a political party.”

The report says that Trump invited Clark onstage as a show of support for the military, not as a political statement or endorsement.

I hate to say it, but this doesn’t sound like the happy-go-lucky Marines I served with. It sounds more like 1692 vintage Salem prigs. Or 1938 vintage Nazi SS squads. But I may be a bit biased because I never liked generals very much.

They can’t point out any rules that he broke but they’re still going to investigate him. At the rate this administration is going those who serve bravely in our military will soon be asked who they voted for as a condition to continue their active service.
Millions watched the video of that baby being handed to that marine, not one person in the Biden administration said a word about it. This one soldier exhibited that our service members have a heart, something this administration is sorely lacking.

Biden, whoever is leading you on, tell them that McKenzie, Austin needs go to jail and Milley should be beheaded for what he has done. COME ON MAN, open your eyes and see what is going on in front of you and stop letting people tell you what to do. You should be THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF, why are you taking orders from idiots?

The twisting of laws and the Constitution to benefit a certain party should come as no surprise – it is a disappointment, for sure, but it is a foreshadowing of what is to come, and the utilization or installation of the thought police.
Despite your political views, this should be a huge alarm to the country.
