(Reuters) - The leader of a platoon whose members were accused of hazing an Asian-American soldier who killed himself in Afghanistan has been punished and will be discharged from the U.S. Army, officials said on Monday.
First Lieutenant Daniel Schwartz was the highest ranking of eight soldiers charged in connection with 19-year-old Private Danny Chen's suicide and the last to have his case resolved.
Chen, the only Chinese-American in his unit, fatally shot himself in a guard tower in southern Afghanistan in October 2011 after enduring weeks of disparaging taunts and physical mistreatment from his superiors, military prosecutors said.
Schwartz, who faced dereliction of duty charges, was punished through an Article 15 administrative proceeding that was not open to the public, officials at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, said on Monday.
This veteran says, "cook the bastards until the cows come home!!" This crap was not right 60 years ago and I am glad my group did not do this and as I was getting out we had WOMEN taking care of JETS A-7. Everyone in the military are group members unless that person is CRAZY redneck who hates people. Then you have a problem.
Personally I think those who have tiny brains are the ones making all the stink since they are CRY BABIES.
