MARINE SGT MAJ PAUL ARCHIE RESIGNS - STEPS
© 2014 MilitaryCorruption.com
He had made it all the way to the top enlisted rank in the Marine Corps over a span of some 26 years, but the sergeant major's long and distinguished career abruptly ended when he lost his temper and used poor judgment.
Now Paul Archie faces a third-degree assault and petty theft charge in Beaufort County District Court. A serious embarrassment to the Corps.
As a result of the video-taped confrontation, where Archie is seen going nose-to-nose with former Marine D.I. Ethan Arguello outside the main gate to the Parris Island MCRD, MilitaryCorruption.com has learned the rugged top NCO has tendered his resignation and stepped down as senior enlisted advisor at the famed USMC boot camp in South Carolina.
ANTI-OBAMA PROTESTORS INCITE ARCHIE
Observers say Archie was driving by a bunch of protesters carrying American flags and decrying President Barak Hussein Obama's controversial move of trading five top Taliban leaders held at Gitmo for a low-ranking enlisted man accused by his buddies of desertion in a combat zone. Some news reports indicate Bowe Bergdahl may have even collaborated with the enemy.
Sources tell us that Archie took exception to two things going on. The anti-Obama tone of the protest, and the fact that one of the demonstrators was wearing a Marine campaign cover.
That man was former USMC non-com and drill instructor Ethan Arguello.
VIDEO TAPE SHOWS WHAT HAPPENED
A study of the video tape by MCC editors proves that Archie's head came in contact with the campaign cover, knocking it off Arguello. What made a bad situation worse was, the angry E-9 then "grabbed up" the cover, falsely claiming it was government property, and drove off with it.
He was also shown to be in uniform (a UC no-no) while challenging the civilian protestors. He also dismounted from his POV without his cover on.
Obviously, the sergeant major was told to "pack it in." Archie will retire as soon as he can get out from under the legal problems he may have brought on himself by unfortunately losing his cool.
