1st Lt. Daniel J. Schwartz
The mother of a Chinese-American soldier testified Tuesday at the court martial of an army sergeant accused of hazing her son, who killed himself in Afghanistan.
Pvt. Danny Chen, of Chinatown, shot himself on Oct. 3, 2011 in Afghanistan after weeks of racial slurs, humiliation and physical abuse by his colleagues, military officials said.
Speaking a news conference on Wednesday, Pentagon spokesman Navy Capt. John Kirby offered his condolences to the family of Pvt. Danny Chen.
Chen, who was from Chinatown, was found dead in his barracks back in October with what was described as “non-combat injuries.” He was just 19.
