According to CNN on January 31, an analysis of the Pentagon and court records shows that among the first 150 people arrested in the Congressional shock on January 6, 21 were active or veterans, accounting for 14% of the total. That’s more than twice the proportion of active and veterans in the U.S. adult population. According to reports, of the 21, two are from the army and two are from the National Guard. The remaining 17 had previously served in the army, Navy, marine corps or air force.
In addition, according to some information obtained by CNN, a number of veterans are associated with the far right group pride boys. One of them, Joseph Randall Biggs, a former Army soldier, is one of the leaders of pride boys. In the criminal indictment, federal investigators said Biggs was one of the first people to enter the Capitol.
