Appeals Court Resuscitates Charges Against Navy Corpsman in 'MARSOC 3' Case


Recommended Posts

A military appeals court has reinstated charges against a Navy corpsman accused of playing a role in the killing of a former Green Beret working as a contractor in Iraq, adding another twist to legal proceedings that have been plagued with delays and allegations by the defendant of intimidation by Marine leaders.

Navy Chief Petty Officer Eric Gilmet was serving with the 3rd Marine Raider Battalion – part of Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command (MARSOC) – stationed in Iraq. On Jan. 1, 2019, Gilmet allegedly had an argument with former Green Beret Rick Rodriguez at a bar in Erbil. Gilmet and three other Marines from his battalion allegedly got into a fight with Rodriguez, and one of them punched him in the head, seriously injuring him.
