A report from WAVE 3 news says the United States Marine Corps recruiting office discharged a man identified as "Joseph Pryor" from a delayed entry program. The program is a stopping point for "hopeful Marines" to get them ready for boot camp.
Here's the statement from the local Marine Corps station:
"Joseph Pryor demonstrated poor judgment in his use of social media that associates him with a racially charged altercation at a political rally. Hatred toward any group of individuals is not tolerated in the Marine Corps and he is being discharged from our delayed entry program effective yesterday."
