A combat-wounded US Marine NCO is on his way out of the Corps after being arrested at a pro-Confederate rally and taking part in the unfurling banner bearing a pro-white slogan.
Camp Lejeune Marine Staff Sergeant Joseph Manning of the Marine Corps Engineer School was arrested in Graham, North Carolina, on May 20 and charged with the Class 2 misdemeanor of first-degree trespass.
Manning and Marine Sergeant Michael Chesny are accused of scaling a building and unfurling a banner that read “YWNRU” or “You Will Not Replace Us,” a slogan for the Marine veteran-founded Identity Evropa group.
Captain Joshua Pena of Marine Training and Education Command told the Marine Corps Times that Manning -who joined the Marines in 2002, deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan and has been awarded with the Purple Heart- is in the process of being administratively separated from the Corps.
