    NEW YORK (WABC) -- A decorated Marine veteran facing a mandatory three years behind bars on a gun charge will not be going to prison, after New Jersey Governor Chris Christie stepped in and commuted his sentence Friday. Marine Sergeant Hisashi Pompey's conviction stands, but the penalty is gone. Additionally, a full pardon remains under review. "Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God, this isn't April Fools, right?" he said, when we told him the good news. "I don't know how to react. I'm grateful, grateful." As we told you exclusively earlier this week, Pompey was fighting for...

    A Marine was found dead today - age 78 or 79. His wish is to be buried at Quantico VA Cemetery. However, we [my girlfriend and I] are having trouble locating documents such as a will, DD-214, etc. He was a lifelong friend of my girlfriend - like a 20 years older brother. So, we will shoulder the responsibility for getting him buried - if we can get documentation and certified to do so. He was estranged from his family, he had a son - and possibly a daughter. And, we have no idea of their names, much less how...

Sant fought with the men until his 29-year-old son emerged from a back room and shot...

    When it comes to the Trump administration’s temporary travel restrictions, everyone has an opinion. However, most people who say the order is heartless don’t have a fundamental understanding of the restrictions. They continue to repeat the lies spouted by MSNBC. “It’s a MUSLIM BAN!”   No. No it’s not.   There’s one response to the order that I believe everyone should watch– conservative and liberal alike. Over the weekend, Kimber highlighted the response from this U.S. Marine working in Iraq, and it’s so common sense and so straightforward, I have no idea how anyone could disagree with it.  ...

The "Idea-Image" committee of Le Pen's far-right National Front (FN)... The job of the group is to advise 48-year-old Le Pen and her top campaign officials on a wide range of issues from where to hold rallies and what issues to highlight, to campaign posters, speeches and online-campaigns.

    On a sunny day at the end of January 2017, an old man approaches the White House from Across Pennsylvania Avenie where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He walked up to the U.S. Marine standing guard and said, "I would like to go in and meet with President Hillary Clinton." The Marine replied, "Sir, Mrs. Clinton is not President and doesn't reside here." The old man said, "Okay," and quietly walked away. The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President...

    Awarded several medals for bravery, along with a Purple Heart, for a severe leg wound he’d received as he and fellow marines fought in the jungles of Iwo Jima, When our new geometry teacher entered the classroom, we high school seniors almost laughed out loud. Well over six feet tall, Mr. Gordon was skeleton skinny, his clothes hung on him like a suit on a scarecrow, he walked with a wobbly limp, and the meek expression on his thin, bony face, along with his subdued, kindly tone of voice, convinced us he was a wimp.

    President-elect Donald Trump has recently discussed national security and diplomacy with retired Gen. John Kelly, the longest-serving Marine general in the military today, with nearly half a century of military service under his belt. Although during his last press conference before retiring earlier this year the decorated general described his “greatest fear” as being offered a job in the U.S. government, Reince Priebus, Trump’s choice for White House chief of staff, told Meet the Press host Chuck Todd on Sunday that Kelly is being considered for secretary of state. The Marine combat veteran could provide an unmatched and informed perspective...

Marine Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling lost a 2014 court-martial at her base in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, based in part on her refusal to remove the verses. She challenged that action but was told Wednesday that she had lost the case after it was ruled that the order was not a 'substantial burden'...
