A U.S. Marine was set to face court martial Wednesday for urinating on the bodies of dead Taliban fighters in Afghanistan and then posing for photos with the corpses.
Two Marine non-commissioned officers will be court-martialed on charges of urinating on the bodies of Taliban fighters last year in Afghanistan and posing for photos with the casualties, the Marine Corps said Monday.
The charges against Staff Sgt. Joseph W. Chamblin and Staff Sgt. Edward W. Deptola are in addition to administrative punishments announced last month for three other, more junior Marines for their roles in the urination episode, which inflamed public opinion in Afghanistan.
