The US Marine Corps decided not to punish a service man who spoke on stage at a Donald Trump rally, according to internal Marine communications obtained by Insider via a Freedom of Information Act request.

Lance Cpl. Hunter Clark appeared on stage at a “Save America” rally in Perry, Georgia, on September 25, in which he introduced himself and claimed to be the “the guy that pulled the baby over the wall.”

It was a reference to an August 19 video showing an officer pulling a baby over a wall near Kabul’s airport during the US withdrawal from Afghanistan. Clark was deployed to Kabul with the 24th Marine Regiment in August as part of 6,000 service members sent to help evacuate diplomats, aid workers, and US citizens.

On September 30, the US Marine Corps said it was investigating whether Clark broke Department of Defense guidelines that forbade US service members from speaking “before a partisan political gathering.”
