As I feared, the military's need to eat its own has claimed another career.

2LT Pantano has submitted his resignation.

I'm too exhausted to say much about it except that it's a damn shame. There's some commentary at Euphoric Reality and Assumption of Command.

Hat tip to Blackfive.

It is a loss for the Marines that would have served under him. But lets face it, his career was toast after the charges. I don't see how he could have chosen differently.

I agree, NOTR. The military, as much as I love it, consumes its own. I maintained from day one that regardless of the outcome, his career was done. The devil got his due in this case.
