(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.
