A Marine is being kicked out of the Corps after he was arrested at a pro-Confederate rally, at which he allegedly helped unfurl a banner with a white supremacist slogan.

Staff Sgt. Joseph Manning was stationed at the Marine Corps Engineer School at Camp Lejeune, in North Carolina when he was arrested on May 20 in Graham, North Carolina, and charged with first degree trespass, a Class 2 misdemeanor.

Manning and fellow active-duty Marine Sgt. Michael Chesny are accused of climbing a building and unfurling a banner with the letters “YWNRU” on it, The Times-News reported on May 27. The letters reportedly stand for “You will not replace us,” which is the slogan for Identity Evropa, a white nationalist group founded by Marine veteran Nathan Damigo.
