A Marine reservist is under investigation for posting a picture on Instagram that showed Marines positioning their boots in the shape of a swastika, a spokesman for Marine Forces Reserve confirmed on Monday.
"We can confirm that Pfc. Anthony D. Schroader is a member of the Selected Marine Corps Reserve and is assigned to 4th Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company, Force Headquarters Group, Marine Forces Reserve located in West Palm Beach, Florida," Maj. Roger Hollenbeck told Task & Purpose.
Hollenbeck declined to say how many Marines in total are under investigation.
The Marine Corps has officially launched an investigation into a lance corporal who apparently attacked a protester at the Charlottesville "Unite The Right" rally while marching with white supremacist groups.
Have you ever wondered what it might be like to battle alongside the Greatest Generation against Adolf Hitler and the rising tide of Nazi tyranny? Well, you can’t actually do that, Call of Duty: WWII, the franchise's 14th installment, lets you virtually storm Normandy, drop into France with the 101st Airborne, and kill Nazi’s a la Inglorious Basterds ...minus Brad Pitt’s shitty accent.
The United States is bracing for a brand new battle against fascism. On Aug. 12, chaos erupted at the University of Virginia’s campus in Charlottesville as white nationalists and neo-Nazis gathered for a “Unite the Right” rally to protest the planned removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee. Amid violent clashes with counter-protesters, the clash turned deadly as a car plowed through a crowd of bystanders, killing a 32-year old woman and injuring dozens more.
