We’ve stripped his title, he’s no longer a Marine. At one point in time, Vanguard America’s hate leader Dillon Hopper had roots in the Marine Corps. But those roots were shriveled and demented. He didn’t take anything the Corps instills in its leaders to heart, for if he did, he wouldn’t be where he is today.
The self-appointed commander of the hate movement recently retired from the Marine Corps as a staff sergeant in January 2017, according to The Guardian, serving in both Afghanistan and Iraq. His group of white supremacists marched in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend waving Nazi flags and spewing hate.
Hopper, 29, went under the radar for a period of time because he used his former name, Dillon Irizarry, for all things Vanguard America, according to the news piece. His name change surfaced once people began digging into his life, discovering that he’d changed his name to court records in New Mexico in late 2006 to Dillon Ulysses Hopper.
