I have been following the ordeal of Lt. Pantano since I learned of the gross injustice perpetrated on him. Yeah, I know, he was aquitted. The situation never should have come to trial All that they had on him was the word a sargent who looks in the mirror every morning and says to his reflection, "I should have been a lieutenant". Today I learn fromRaven at And Rightly So! that Lt. Pantano has resigned his commission. I cannot say that I blame him. The real shame is that while the USMC loses a man of the caliber of Lt. Pantano, it keeps the likes of the sargent (who I refuse to name).
Semper Fidelis, Lt. Pantano.
