Task Force releases audio of veteran’s speech in ROTC hearing
In response to the recent controversy over one particular speaker-to-audience interaction—a former veteran from Iraq who was reportedly heckled during his speech—the Task Force on Military Engagement has released an audio recording of that particular segment of the hearing. The recording can be listened to here.
The New York Post published a story on the incident today that has attracted attention around the Internet.
The veteran who spoke, Anthony Maschek, 28 and a GS freshman, was shot nine times while in combat and was awarded a Purple Heart. During his speech, some students allegedly yelled “racist” and others “laughed and jeered,” according to the Post. In the released audio, remarks of “racist” can be heard at the 2:29 mark and the alleged jeering occurred from the 1:26 to 1:35 period.
