Marines posed for photo with Nazi SS symbol in Afghanistan

Washington , Fri, 10 Feb 2012 ANI

Washington, Feb.10 (ANI): A Marines scout sniper team in Afghanistan posed for a photograph with the Nazi SS symbol.


In the image, the Marines are pictured in front of a flag resembling the Nazi SS insignia and the American flag.


The picture was taken in September 2010 in Sangin province, Afghanistan, and the Marines were with the 1st Reconnaissance Battalion out of Camp Pendleton, California.


The U.S. Marine Corps confirmed the event and called it unacceptable.


"Certainly, the use of the 'SS runes' is not acceptable and Scout Snipers have been addressed concerning this issue," The Politico quoted Captain Brian Block, as saying in a statement.


The Marines in the photograph are no longer with the unit, Captain Block said. (ANI)
