US Marines discharges sergeant for criticizing President Barack Obama on Facebook www.privateofficer.com
SAN DIEGO CA April 26 2012 (AP) – The Marine Corps has decided to discharge a sergeant for criticizing President Barack Obama on Facebook.
The Corps said Wednesday that Sgt. Gary Stein will be given an other-than-honorable discharge for violating Pentagon policy limiting speech of service members.
The San Diego-area Marine has served nearly 10 years in the Marine Corps. He has said he was exercising his free-speech rights.
The discharge will mean he loses all benefits.
