JEFFERSON CITY, MO. (KMOX) - The Missouri National Guard’s handling of a self-proclaimed neo-nazi in its ranks isn’t sitting well with state legislators.
The Post Dispatch reported there was no action against Sgt. Nathan Wooten almost a year after co-workers complained about him.
Wooten, who had a portrait of Adolf Hitler in his living room, supervised military funerals at veterans cemeteries. Wooten was fired from that job. Former Guardsman Eddie Ratliff says that punishment wasn’t harsh enough.
“There shouldn’t be any Nazis burying World War Two Veterans. That would be like having your enemy come and burying you, you know.” said Ratliff.
The Committee on Governmental Accountability is investigating the Guard’s discipline policy.
