The sergeant and the most culpable lance corporal need to be court martialed now--not when the unit returns from deployment.

The sergeant is in charge of training his troops/ Marines.

What about the platoon commander and company commander? Where were they?

Officers abdicating their responsibility.

If this guy was the disaster indicated by the story, he should have been transferred out of the combat zone, not “disciplined” by his peers.

1. If the USMC is like the Army, then that won't happen.

2. We don't really know what happened anyway.

Falling asleep on guard duty used to carry a severe penalty with it (it starts with an “e” and ends with an “n”) - and for very good reason.

Semper Fi...oh, I’m sorry, I ment get bent. The only thing that saddens me is that his “peers” didn’t frag his sorry arse.
