Marine has himself shot to avoid going back to Iraq

Moises Hernandez, 19, of Chicago, a U.S. Marine, had his cousin shoot him in the leg so as to avoid having to be sent back to Iraq.

Hernandez is back with his unit at Camp Pendleton, Calif., and the Marines are investigating the incident. His unit had returned June 5 from a six-month deployment that included a month in Iraq. — Fox News

He has been charged by civilian authorities with filing a false police report, but I expect that the Marines will be much harder on him.
