Lt. Pantano's Article 32 hearing delayed

(Via WorldNet Daily)

(Background here and here.)

According to The New York Daily News, Marine 2nd Lt. Ilario Pantano's Article 32 hearing (roughly the military equivalent of a grand jury hearing) has been delayed until April 25. No reason was given.

That's interesting news, but you know what struck me the most? This guy gave up a 6-figure job (and left a model wife and a young kid at home) to rejoin the Marine Corps after 9/11. He'd already done his bit as a non-com in the Gulf War. Most guys in his shoes would have stayed home and let younger men fight this one. Nope--he rejoins the Marines, goes to OCS and then to Iraq.

Let's just hope every good deed doesn't get punished in this case.
