Corporal Hassoun has been charged
CAMP LEJEUNE, NC — The U.S. Marine Corps has charged Cpl. Wassef Ali Hassoun with desertion following a five-month investigation into his disappearance from a U.S. military camp near Fallujah, Iraq in June.
The story of his disappearance has looked wrong from the beginning. I am glad it looks like he will be burned for his actions. He is totally deserving of a nice stay in the brig.
How a Corporal of Marines can desert his post, his troops, and his Corps is beyond me. When you take that oath of service, it is a major point in your life. It completely changes how you look at the world and literally changes who you are. Hassoun violated that oath and will be punished.
I have hope that this Marine is stripped of the title. He doesn’t deserve it.
