Breaking News--Jerry Texiero To Be Released From the Marine Corps
Breaking News--Jerry Texiero to be released from the Marine Corps

Wednesday, January 11, 2006, Camp Lejeune, N.C. – The Commanding General of the Marine Corps Base, Camp Lejeune, N.C. has order the immediate Administrative Discharge of Jerry Texiero. Jerry is being moved from the brig to Camp Lejeune’s Separation Barracks for processing out of the Marine Corps.
While I am as happy as a man can be about Jerry’s being discharged without having to face a kangaroo court, we must remember that Jerry has been a prisoner for the past 5 months. When Jerry was transferred from the brig at Parris Island to Camp Lejeune it was with the recommendation to administratively discharge Jerry. The command at Camp Lejeune rejected that recommendation.
Knowing they did not have a real case against Jerry, LTC Annie Best chose to try and do a character assignation job on Jerry by release false info that was in his personal military file. To simply state that was against the law is an understatement. I will be keeping a close eye on the situation as I am way too familiar with the Separation Barracks at Camp Lejeune. There are a couple of people there, a 1st Sgt in particular that are not nice people to put it mildly.
That said, it is a good thing that the Marine Corps has backed off its desire to prosecute him. But like I said, the Corps did in the end imprison Jerry for over 5 months.
