The Fort Drum soldier charged with carrying a “ghost gun” at a Black Lives Matter protest in June in Troy has left the Army.
A Fort Drum official confirmed Noah Latham, 22, is no longer in the Army, as of Aug. 31. Mr. Latham was “separated administratively” from the Army, the official said.
That means Mr. Latham’s departure was not punitive in nature and not at the result of a court martial, the Fort Drum official said. No other reason was given for the departure.
Mr. Latham was part of a group of seven other men at the rally, all dressed in military-style body armor and wearing bullet-proof vests. Some were carrying loaded firearms and two-way radios.
