He probably won't serve much jail time. Lt. Calley only served 30 days for the murder of over 400 civilians including women and children in the Mai Lai massacre in Viet Nam. The US military has never taken war crimes seriously.

Taliban daily kills tens of Afghani people. In Afghanistan dying is nothing special.
