A U.S. Marine who was tasked with protecting the Hamid Karzai International Airport amid President Joe Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan is reportedly under investigation for appearing at a rally earlier this month with former President Donald Trump.
Capt. Kelton J Cochran, a spokesman for the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), confirmed to Task & Purpose that Lance Cpl. Hunter Clark is under investigation for his appearance at a “Save America Rally” in Perry, Georgia, on September 25.
“The 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) has initiated a command investigation regarding LCpl Hunter Clark’s attendance at the event last weekend to determine if any DoD policies were violated,” Cochran said. “Any details pertaining to this incident are not releasable while the investigation is being conducted.”
