5 Pendleton Marines face dismissal for fraternizing

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Five Marines are facing dismissal for fraternizing with an enlisted woman at San Diego's Camp Pendleton.

The Los Angeles Times says Marine officials announced Monday that five male staff sergeants fraternized with a lance corporal in the 1st Marine Logistics Group over a period of several months.

Fraternization — meaning improper relations between different ranks — is banned under military law because it can affect discipline.

One man received a bad conduct discharge. Three others were recommended for administrative separation but they can fight that at hearings.

Four of the men are married but three were found not guilty of adultery at their courts-martial.

The fourth pleaded guilty to fraternization and adultery but waived his right to an administrative hearing.

The woman is not facing charges.
