The National Guard reportedly has fired a sergeant from his position as a member of an honor guard that helps with military funerals. The Guard won’t say why it has fired Sergeant Nathan Wooten of Macon. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports co-workers had complained that Wooten has proclaimed himself a neo-Nazi who flies German national flag as his home.
Wooten remains a member of the National Guard. Guard spokesman Tammy Spicer has told the newspaper that the Guard has a separate investigation of him underway.
The newspaper says, “Wooten denied being involved with the neo-Nazi movement last month when a reporter asked him about it at the armory in Macon.”
