Well, that’s interesting. In contravention to regulation and federal law, at least two servicemembers, including the commanding officer, were in possession of weapons, and fought back against the Islamist terrorist who attacked both a recruiting station and NOSC Chattanooga. During his assault which killed four Marines and one Sailor, at least one Marine carried a Glock pistol, and the NOSC commander, LCDR Timothy White possessed a weapon, and exchanged fire with the assailant.
Pistols versus an AK style rifle and shotgun isn’t a fair fight, but it’s far better than nothing.
The question now is will the chain of command honor LCDR White for his valor, or denounce him for violation of regulations?
