US Marine Protests Discharge by Crucifying Himself in Uniform (Images)

You know, when you are discharged from the Marine Corps, the best reaction is probably not to hang one’s self from a cross in protest. You’re not being crucified–you did something wrong and you paid the price. Unfortunately, this logic is lost on Cpl. Joshua Klohr.


In the Marines, obeying orders is a very important part of the job. However, he still feels that he was wrong in being court marshaled and discharged.  He posted a timeline of events that led to his discharge, along with a mountain of other documents on his Facebook page to explain why he felt it necessary to hang himself from a cross, as though he is a victim:

It sounds like he had a rough time, but he did repeatedly disobey orders–hardly worthy of pretending one is being crucified.

You can read more about his “protest” here, where you can find every piece of documentation you could possibly hope to find.

what do you think, AATTP?  Was he “crucified,” or is he simply bitter because his blatant refusal to obey his orders came back to haunt him?

    tl;dr – he wanted to be a martyr, obviously.

  • Merow

    …I just have to say this… I thought it was my ex-boyfriend when I read the first paragraph (but the last name would be Kolar and the fact he isn’t in the marines but in navy) I was like “Well shiiit he finally lost his marbles.” rofl Meh some people many are more nutty than a fruitcake -Shrugs-

  • Holly Emerson

    I keep trying to get through his hysterics and see what he actually did wrong, and what I can tell is he kept refusing to follow orders (but I have no idea what orders those were). I could read the whole thing, but honestly, it’s too much, “Poor pitiful me”. Did anyone ACTUALLY see what order he didn’t follow?

  • Dot

    Wow, it’s really hard to read his ramblings. Seriously, it sounds like some mental heath “movement” is in order.

  • Tony Shell

    Kinda like that other nut in Kentucky. Refuses to do their jobs’. Then claim persecution.

  • cornath

    Can you say, “nut bag?”

  • Batman in Arkham

    And unless you have real nails attaching you to that cross, you’re being a huge pussy about it.

    • Eoin Maloney

      Well, to be fair, Rome would actually tie victims to their crosses. Nails would have actually been highly irregular. The point of crucifixion was a slow death of starvation or thirst, not bleeding or infections.

  • al_literate

    He refused a lawful order. It’s that simple. If he couldn’t obey orders he should not have joined.

    • John Masters

      Nothing more important in the military than following orders, so long as they are legal. Sorry, no excuse here.

  • Karaya

    “Human rights” this and “human rights” that, it’s getting to everyone’s head, everyone wants to bitch, and soon US soldiers are going to complain about being shot at in war.

  • Former recruiter

    He disobeyed orders by not performing his duties as a canvassing recruiter. That means he should have went to the office and worked, which consists of calling your high school lists, meet and greets at his assigned schools, and talk to males/females between the ages of 17-25yrs old at the mall, park, walmart etc. I was a recruiter and I hated it and was pressured to fraud, but I applied the basics learned at the school house and it worked. I never quit because it wasn’t an option!

  • Senior LCpl of the Marine Corps

    This is the usual behavior from someone who does something wrong and thinks the “Corps” is out to get them. The Marines ask you to do your job, which you sore an oath to do, that’s it. This is the garbage that you get from this attention starving generation. This guy is nothing more than a very bad sea lawyer.

    Ridiculous. When I was in the Corps, crybabies like this kid had the sense to straighten up and fly right, or get out .

    The dude is a spoiled brat

  • Fairy Larry

    I read all that shit and know nothing. What exactly did he not wish to do?

    • Seth J. Spearbeck

      He wanted the Marine Corps to allow him the requested year to work on his pet project to bring America together and open some kind of a store. The Marine Corps told him to get back to work. He refused. They ordered him back to work. He refused. They did it again. Still, he refused. Even at that point all they were going to do was give him an Article 15 (non-judicial punishment) take some rank, give him some extra duty, barred him to reenlistment and then send him out of the recruiting unit (since he likely would no longer have had the rank to perform duties as a recruiter). He refused and demanded a court-marital – which is his right. The Marine Corps wanted him to finish his term, and likely would have given him his honorable discharge at the end of his term. Dude brought this on himself.

      • Spike

        Thank you. I tried to read all of the documents but couldn’t…just to much form my little mind.

      • Craig

        That’s exactly how I read it. What is “Personal movement”?

      • Marjorie McKinstry-Miller

        Thank you, Seth. I attempted to slog through his binder-fest… but felt as if I were drowning in drivel.

      • Seth v.

        That wasn’t what happened. I know this man personally; I served with him. Although I wasn’t his biggest fan, I still liked him. In a nutshell, he had been going through an endless amount of personal tragedys; one being the death of his infant son. When it all came to an emotional tipping point he requested to be returned to FMF and to seek counseling and other help. His COC refused and told him to keep recruiting. I don’t agree with his protest, but I do believe, all around, this situation could’ve been handled better.

    I was released from the psychiatric ward in the Marine Corps after being committed because I was honest when I discovered I was God. Then, after being told I was getting medically discharged for bipolar disorder, they caught me smoking synthetic marijuana and put me in the brig for four months before kicking me out with no benefits. Was I psychotic, or am I God? That is a fcking crucifixion. He is just a Marine who made a mistake.

    This clown made Sargent? Good lord. The Corps must have been hurting that day.

    I know I’m old fashioned, but when I was in, you did what you were ordered to do, and if offered the choice between NJP and a SCM, you grabbed onto that NJP with both hands.

    The kid is a moron.

    • Sully

      You mean sergeant

    • Jake33


  • Ceri Cat

    Looks like he’s going to have another charge headed his way due to improper wear of dress uniform.
    It sounds a lot like since training as a recruiter he’s habitually disregarded orders from his superiors however.

  • https://www.facebook.com/jeff.mitcler Jeff Mitcler

    Won’t be long before this guy loads a rented Ryder truck w/ fertilizer & diesel fuel.

  • http://non Nora

    If he had been ordered to kill women and children, and refused,would that be ok?

    • Comicus

      Yes. Soldiers are expected to refuse orders which violate the Constitution and/or the UCMJ.

      • AhhhCpl

        The UCMJ and the Constitution say absolutely nothing about women and children one way or another. Anyone that is a threat to our way of life is fair game. Period.

    • pogo

      Shut the fuck up.

    • Tom Hoey

      Soldiers are only required to follow Lawful Orders. If those women and children were trying to kill him, then yes, he would be justified to kill them. Otherwise, killing civilian women and children is unlawful, so therefore, no, he would not be required to carry out an unlawful order.

    • Ceri Cat

      Any soldier has a duty to refuse what is termed an unlawful order, such as shooting prisoners of war. Failure to do so and merely going along with what a unit CO tells you to do makes you as guilty as your CO for uttering that order. You also have a duty to follow any lawful order to the best of your ability, that this man repeatedly refused orders to perform his designated duties is in no way comparable to being ordered to kill non-combatants which is expressly prohibited under most rules of engagement with the sole mitigating factor being self defence.

  • Eleanor Earley

    He is a victim of his own actions.

  • LiberalConstitutionalist

    I have no idea if he could be considered innocent or guilty. Just because someone says it was a lawful order doesn’t mean it was. The charge says he was told to go do his job. If he refused an order it would have been more specific than that. I wish we knew exactly what the order was. It does, in fact, seem suspicious that the “lawful order” was not specified. If your supervisor tells you to go shoot a civilian across the street, he can say lawful order all he wants but it doesn’t change that it is not. On the other side, he does not specify what it was either.

  • Sgt. Jeffery Humphrey

    Ok, Ive looked over these documents and still wondering, what order as a recruiter did he feel he needed to disobey? All Ive seen is a person with an overinflated ego not happy with the out come of a court martial. If thats so he needs to quit with the over grandiose acts and just call up Sean Hannitt and Cliven Bundy and get the TeaParty OathKeepers Militia to make the Marines back down cause you know we have to many bureaucrats armed to the teeth as is.

    Shut up and take your licks you dishonorable piece of detritus. HOOAH?

      In that light his mental state is even more worrisome. He really needs help. Sadly the VA system can’t even keep up with those who have developed their problems from combat service, and I don’t know if this guy would be eligible for VA services anymore. Hopefully he gets hooked up with some community resources. We really need to make mental care a higher priority in funding before more tragedy.

      • Kasey

        VA can’t help anybody that is not Honorably Discharged or retired.

  • JFischer

    He disobeyed orders.

    I couldn’t continue reading his screed. What was all that about a retailer or superstore or whatever in the beginning? And his allegation that the prosecutor didn’t bother with evidence, but simply railroaded a man charged with rape (and thus, was railroading him), made no sense.
