15 words on Facebook ruins the life of a US Marine

Sgt Gary Stein a San Diego Marine had served 9-years in the US Marine Corps but is now being discharged because he had posted 15-words, critical of the US President Barack Obama in his Facebook page.

It would be an other-than-honorable discharge and he stands to lose most of his benefits for violating the policies of the Pentagon.

This has been reported in foxnews of 26th April2012.

Gary Stein is disappointed with this decision of the Marine Corp and feels that he is losing his constitutional rights to free speech.

It seems Gary wanted to leave the Corps in a dramatic way so as to take up a career in talk radio or some such area.

The directives of the Pentagon that govern the discipline of military personnel in uniform are very clear – and, free speech has certain limitations which must be followed.
