Marines Drop Case Against Iraq Veteran

The Marines won't kick out an Iraq war veteran who made anti-war statements in a speech and wore part of his uniform at a protest, the service said Friday, despite a recommendation to discharge him early.

The Marines said in a statement that they weren't proceeding with the case because they had ''received sufficient indication'' from Liam Madden, 22, that he would no longer wear his uniform when engaged in political activities. They also determined that his statements did not warrant further action.
